Anna Mazierak started this petition to Richard Drax MP

Calling upon Weymouth Council, Richard Drax, MP for the South Dorset region to guarantee protection for the King's Statue that has graced Weymouth's seafront since 1810. Erected to celebrate his 50 years on England's throne, it is a well-known landmark, and causes no offence to anyone whatsoever, yet it is now under threat from "Topple the Racists" activists. 

Weymouth was much enjoyed by the King. He holidayed here to recover from the mental health problems he suffered in later life He purchased a holiday home on the Esplanade. He established Weymouth as a major seaside resort, and brought wealth to the area, so that is why he is fondly remembered here.I grew up in Poland, and have been living and working in Weymouth since 2011. My parents endured life under a communist regime, and I am concerned at the cultural attacks happening in the UK and USA. Please let's stop this before we repeat a truly terrifying chapter of history.
