OPENING DAY PROTEST 2013 at Cleveland Baseball

Forums:

Our annual event protesting Cleveland Baseball's use of "Chief Wahoo" logo and "Indians" team name. Since 1973, we have 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 and the despicable “Chief Wahoo" logo.

The location for this event is "Progressive" Field. We meet at the E. 9th Street Gate C (100 ft. North of the Bob Feller Statue on the grassy area), typically two hours before the game starts. As of yet, no time has been announced for the Season Opener at Cleveland Baseball. Please check back at a later date for more accurate information.

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 all.

WHEN: APRIL 8, 2013 - Time TBD
(will update when time of game has been announced)

WHERE: 'PROGRESSIVE' FIELD - GATE C, E 9TH ST, Cleveland, OH 44115

We are meeting at "Progressive" Field at 2.00pm on Monday, April 8, 2013. The season opener for Cleveland Baseball begins at 4.05pm; we usually disperse once the game has begun.

We will meet at GATE C, which is on East 9th ST in downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
