Keep the new memorial for Dambusters' dog

History has not been eradicated! 

It is time for a counter-petition to be put forward.

There needs to be a resistance against the demand to return the racial slur back to the gravestone that pays tribute to the black Labrador.

The name has been removed as it has the power to cause undeniable offence to people. A word that has a history of being used to abuse, oppress and subdue others. Why should we allow it to continue? Why should the name remain?

History has not been altered. Instead, we have learned from it and in doing so we have not rewritten history but have taken steps to build a better present and future.

I want people to know that there are many of us that agree with the decision made by the RAF and we want the gravestone to remain as it is, with the picture of the black Labrador. As it stands, the monument both honours the incredible efforts of the Dambusters and their dog but also it no longer has language that can hurt and offend.

Join me by signing this petition.
