Pro-Colin Kaepernick Demonstration Scheduled For Colts Opening Home Game

The NFL has been facing growing criticism  — and a large drop in ratings — as a massive round of protests supporting Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling during the National Anthem continues to gain momentum.

The former Superbowl-Staring Quarterback has been out of a job since last season, and it appears that he has been victim of a coordinated effort by League Owners and Front Offices to keep him unemployed. Many see this as a form of punishment for speaking out against White Supremacy and Police Brutality, and the #BoycottNFL demonstrations have grown by the week.

This upcoming Sunday when the Indianapolis Colts kick-off their slate of home games at Lucas Oil Stadium against the Arizona Cardinals — the presence of Colin Kaepernick’s movement will be felt directly outside of their doorstep.

 

 

The Organization Standing 4 Kaepernick are the orchestrators behind a nation wide rounds of rallies planned at NFL games around the country this upcoming Sunday. Involving coordination between multiple local organizations and leaders, Standing 4 Kaepernick aims to take the Public involvement of the Kaepernick rallies to the next level.

Beginning at 11am this upcoming Sunday, a Pro-Kaepernick demonstration will be held just outside of Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis. The group will convene in the public areas surrounding the stadium in a show of solidarity with the movement Colin Kaepernick launched when he first kneeled for the national anthem a little over a year ago. The organization — led by Tim Clark of Brooklyn — does not plan to end their rallying any time soon, as plans to extend the boycott beyond NFL viewership and protesting has already been outlined by the organization.
