Removal of Genocide Cannon in Decatur Square

We, the undersigned, request that the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners pass a resolution to remove the cannon on the City of Decatur Square placed there by the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) in 1906. The cannon commemorates the 1836 “Indian War” that was part of the white supremacist, genocidal removal of the Creeks from the state of Georgia. In the same way our community won a people’s victory in June 2020 with the removal of the other monument to white supremacy sponsored by the UDC, we see the removal of this cannon as another important step towards raising awareness, restorative justice, and the racial equity we seek to create in our diverse community.
