Locker Room Politics

By Beachwood Reporter on Wednesday, April 28, 2010

"AMERICA, there is no doubt about it; the Arizona Diamondbacks are one of the top contributors to the Republican machine in Arizona that have unanimously voted for the draconian Arizona State Proposition SB1070."

So says a call to picket and/or boycott the Arizona Diamondbacks' visit to Wrigley Field on Thursday.

"Due to the recent passage of the anti-immigrant/xenophobic bill SB1070 -signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer, Chicago Cubs fans will rally against the Arizona Diamondbacks (SB1070) OUTSIDE of Wrigley Field," the appeal says.

"WHAT: A protest outside of Wrigley Field Stadium on April 29, 2010 to encourage fans to take a stand against and turn their backs on the Arizona Diamondbacks.

"A call to all Chicago Cubs fans attending any of the four games this weekend to not attend or bring signs against SB1070 in solidarity with the people who are being targeted in Arizona.

"WHERE: Wrigley Field Stadium (Corner of Addison and Clark) at 12:00 PM CST on Thursday, April 29.

"We stand in solidarity with our undocumented/documented Arizona bro. and sis. and will NOT tolerate this unconstitutional racist law here or anywhere. Today AZ, tomorrow?
We are going to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a message to send back home!

"* This is a nationally televised game - if you know people who will be attending have them bring signs against SB1070 in solidarity.

"* Bring sings and banners to the protest!

"* Outside we'll remind fans about what Arizona Diamondback owners really stand for."

Protest leaders are keeping their perspective, though, adding:

"LET'S MAKE SURE THE CUBS WIN THIS GAME."
