OPENING DAY PROTEST 2014 at Cleveland Baseball

Forums:


Our annual event protesting Cleveland Baseball's use of "Chief Wahoo" logo and "Indians" team name. This year's rally should prove quite eventful given the increasing attention being focused on our cause. Since 1973, we have repeatedly objected to the degrading, racist depictions of Native people by Cleveland Baseball by demonstrating at Opening Day. We continue to insist that Cleveland Baseball abolish it use of the clearly bigoted, racist, and shameful “Indians” team name and the despicable “Chief Wahoo" logo.

We meet typically two hours before the game starts. This year we hope you will join the American Indian community, our supporters, and the Cleveland American Indian Movement in the continuing fight against bigotry, stereotyping, and racism in Cleveland. Together we will send the message that racism against one is racism against everyone.
