Santa Fe protesters stand ground against trespassing charges

Police in Santa Fe lead away protester organizer Jennifer Marley of San Ildefonso Pueblo in hand restraints on Friday. Santa Fe police say they arrested at least 12 people to contain protest against an annual pageant marking the return of Spanish conquistador Don Diego de Vargas to New Mexico following a 17th century Indian revolt. Public statues and tributes to early Spanish conquerors are facing mounting criticism tied to the brutal treatment of American Indians centuries ago by Spanish soldiers and missionaries, with activists drawing ethical parallels to the national controversy over Confederate monuments.
