Protest supporting Colin Kaepernick to take place before Bears season opener

Protest supporting Colin Kaepernick to take place before Bears season opener

The Seattle Seahawks are the only team that has hosted Kaepernick since he opted out of his contract with the 49ers and became a free agent.

On Aug. 26, 2016, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down during the National Anthem before the third preseason game of the upcoming 2016 NFL season. "There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder".

Filmmaker Spike Lee is backing a rally in support of quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who provoked controversy last season by kneeling during the USA national anthem to protest against injustice in America. Lee said on Twitter he didn't organize the protest, but that he supports Kaepernick and "his stance on the injustices in the US". Several Chicago charities have benefitted from Kaepernick's generosity, including Chicago's Southsiders Organized for Unity and Liberation (SOUL) and the city's Black Youth Project 100.

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.

The rally is to be held outside the National Football League headquarters on August 23.

SOUL's considering ways to protest on Kaepernick's behalf, but have made no concrete plans.

The #NoKaepernickNoNFL petition threatens to boycott the league by not watching or attending any games, not discussing or engaging with football accounts on social media platforms, and not purchasing any NFL merchandise.
