Opening Day Demonstration 2019

Join us once again as we gather at Cleveland Baseball to protest the use of the "Indians" team name and the Wahoo logo.

With your support we have been able to bring the exploitation of indigenous people as sports mascots to international attention. In November 2018, Major League Baseball announced that it had struck a gentleman's agreement with Cleveland Baseball, recognizing that Wahoo is "no longer appropriate" for on-field use. But we cannot stop here... a gentleman's agreement is not enough, nor is the continued licensing of Wahoo for off-field use. The racist behavior that fans display at Cleveland Baseball is not a product of Wahoo, Wahoo is a product of the racism at the stadium.

John Winthrop, a founder of the Massachusetts Bay colony considered this wave of illness and death [among Natives] to be a divine miracle. He wrote to a friend in England, "But for the natives in these parts, God hath so pursued them, as for 300 miles space the greatest part of them are swept away by smallpox which still continues among them. So as God hath thereby cleared our title to this place, those who remain in these parts, being in all not 50, have put themselves under our protection.
