THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2012 — 1pm
"Progressive" Field — E. 9th Street, Gate C (100 feet north of the Bob Feller Statue on the grass area)

Since 1973, Cleveland A.I.M. has repeatedly objected to the degrading, racist depictions of Native people by Cleveland Baseball by demonstrating at every Opening Day. We continue to insist that Cleveland Baseball abolish it use of the clearly bigoted, racist, and shameful “Indians” team name, logos, and mascot “Chief Wahoo”.

About Cleveland American Indian Movement

Cleveland American Indian Movement was founded in 1970 by Russell Means, a Lakota Sioux activist born on Pine Ridge Reservation, and Dennis Banks, an Objiwa activist and one of the original founders of the American Indian Movement. Cleveland A.I.M. has maintained the original principals of self-determination set forth by the founders of the American Indian Movement: sovereignty, spirituality, solidarity, and sobriety. We are a member of the American Indian Movement International Confederation of Autonomous Chapters.

April 1, 2011

Our fight for basic Dignity and Human Rights in Cleveland is ongoing. Since 1973, Cleveland AIM has demonstrated against racism by Cleveland Baseball and its degrading depictions of native people in its team name and logo. In 1972, we filed a libel and slander lawsuit against Cleveland Baseball; in 1995 we again had to sue Cleveland Baseball and Gateway Corp for interfering with our right to simply speak on public property!
