Award Ariana Grande Freedom of the City of Manchester

This petition had 826 supporters

Everyone around the world has been affected by the tragic events at Manchester Arena on Monday 22nd May at Ariana Grande's concert. Being born and bred in Manchester, it has affected myself and my fellow Mancunians just that bit more.

Since that day, Ariana has raised thousands and thousands for the We Love Manchester Emergency fund, spread the message of love and unity and urged others to do the same and donate, spent time with the victims in Manchester hospitals and put together a show watched by millions worldwide, One Love Manchester. This concert brought together artists from all over across different genres and embodied peace, love, unity and everything that needed to be expressed during the city's darkest hour.

Music unites people, it has no religion or political agenda and allows people to connect with their emotions in a way that nothing else can. The fact it was used as an opportunity for destruction made the tragedy even worse, if that was even possible. Ariana has turned the situation around through One Love Manchester and not to mention has ensured that even more money is raised for the fund through it.


It would be a nice gesture to make Ariana Grande an honorary Mancunian, by giving her Freedom of the City of Manchester. To thank her for showing tremendous courage, standing up for what is right and turning a moment of heartbreak into pure love.
