Rally In Support Of NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick Outside The League's HQ In New York

If you plan on taking in the festivities at Soldier Field on Sunday, you’re going to have quite a bit of company outside the stadium.  And we’re not talking about the fans coming to cheer on the Bears.

Before the game, a protest will be held in support of Colin Kaepernick, who will begin the season unemployed after tossing 16 touchdowns to only four interceptions last year.

The movement is called Standing 4 Kaepernick Protest — Chicago, and currently 1,000 people are committed to attend. There are also over 4,500 people who are listed as “interested” in attending, so this could end up drawing quite the crowd.

The post on the event reads as follows:

“WHAT?
We will be staging protests at the first game played at every NFL stadium this season.

WHY?
Colin Kaepernick’s peaceful protest of police brutality and other racial injustices has led to him being blackballed by the NFL.

NFL owners have either decided to punish Kaepernick for taking this stand OR that it’s best for business to sweep these issues under the rug. Either option is UNACCEPTABLE! 

The issues Colin raised cannot be ignored, and the people he is fighting for will not be taken for granted.

The NFL will continue to silence and punish players who speak out against oppression unless we make them pay in terms of their image, ratings, and sales.

BY STANDING 4 KAEPERNICK, WE ARE STANDING FOR PLAYERS’ ABILITY TO RAISE AWARENESS BY TAKING SMALL STEPS SUCH AS NOT STANDING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM WITHOUT LOSING THEIR JOBS.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW…
- Stay tuned to this page for information about upcoming meetings and protest details.
- This is a peaceful protest that is meant to support athletes’ ability to engage in peaceful protests. We do not condone ANY violence or damage caused.”

A permit has been secured, and police are aware of the event. It must be noted that Colin Kaepernick has no involvement in this demonstration whatsoever. He recently held a “Know Your Rights” camp in Chicago and donated money, and this might be a bunch of the grateful people who want to pay him back for his generosity.  

Last month, his frat brothers and other supporters held a protest right outside the league’s office in New York.
