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 continued licensing of 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.

We meet two hours before game time, under the trees just north of Bob Feller statue. Bring a sign, make one, or use one of ours.

We are people, not mascots!
