Yesterday was the most recent in a series of actions that have taken our campaign inside the stadium. Representatives from Presente.org and PUENTE unfurled a banner at last night’s Diamondbacks game in Phoenix that read “Mr. Kendrick…Don’t Fund Hate. No SB1070″. In Seattle and New York, protestors have dropped banners and even run on the field to get Bud Selig’s attention. The Associated Press reported on last night’s story moments after it happened:
Diamondbacks-Nats game delayed after immigration law protest sign draped over wall
Associated Press, August 2, 2010
PHOENIX — The Nationals and Diamondbacks were delayed briefly Monday night when a fan draped a sign over the left-field wall protesting Arizona’s immigration law.
Plate umpire Angel Hernandez halted the game in the first inning when he saw the large sign addressed to Diamondbacks owner Ken Hendrick.
The sign read: “Mr. Kendrick … Don’t feed hate. Say no to SB1070.”
