Opening Day Demonstration 2019

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!

Cleveland v Atlanta 2019 demonstration

Cleveland v Atlanta 2019 demonstration

CLEVELAND, OH - Cleveland American Indian Movement, the second oldest urban AIM chapter nationally, will demonstrate outside "Progressive" Field during Cleveland Indians vs Atlanta Braves game Friday April 19, in protest of the continued use of American Indian symbols and team names in Major League Baseball.

FRIDAY, April 19 - 5pm

Come join us and support our fight against corporate racism. In the last few years, Cleveland AIM has been able to bring the exploitation of indigenous people as sports mascots to international attention. In response, Major League Baseball announced in November 2018 that it had struck a gentleman's agreement with Cleveland Baseball, stating that Wahoo is "no longer appropriate" for on-field use. But we cannot stop here. Indian-head logos, "tomahawk chops", fans dressed in red-face and headdresses, shouting Hollywood war-whoops — what we call "playing Indian" — must cease. The continued use of 'Indians' and 'Braves' team names enables this offensive behavior, and shows quite clearly that a dollar spent on Major League Baseball is a dollar that supports raci$m.

With your support we can make positive change.
