To: New Orleans Mayor and City Council

Take Down ALL Symbols of White Supremacy in New Orleans

Reason for signing

  • The oppressive Bastille prison location is marked by the July Column. Parts have been re-purposed, including placed in foot bridges. The former source and symbol of oppression is now appropriately thread under foot. The column resembles the Lee's former pedestal. It can only stand, renamed honorably, for example: Oh Freedom, Come Sunday, etc. The metal from the statues can provide benches for City Park visitors.
