Mary Hawaz started this petition to Phildelphia City Council and

In order to reconcile the Philadelphia community with its leadership and police force, we wish to launch a petition demanding that the statue of Frank Rizzo stay removed. This statue is a reminder to all minorities in Philadelphia of a brutal and abusive past, in which we were dehumanized, wrongfully criminalized, beaten, and murdered by our very own police force, with the full support of our highest city officials.

According to police commissioner John Timoney—in reference to the anti-police protestors—Rizzo is reported to have said “When I am finished with them, I will make Attila the Hun look like a fa**ot.” This single quote defines the harmful and inhumane treatment Frank Rizzo enforced throughout our community. He was a sadist, power hungry bigot, unapologetic about his hatred of everyone he viewed as different.

Please show your support by signing this petition!

“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.” - Haile Selassie
