Mayor Sadiq Khan (of London UK), can we borrow your balloon?
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
We appreciate both your vision and sense of humor in the approval to allow the baby balloon to fly over your great city during the visit of President Trump.
Is it possible for this balloon to be loaned to other municipalities around the world as a traveling rebuke of the dangerous rhetoric and troubling policies of the current administration of the United States?
I ask this with a personal reason as Mr Trump is coming to my city (Kansas City) in a couple of weeks. But i also believe the statement of the artist, and the statement you made in allowing the balloon to fly, should continue.
In almost every visit/speech Mr Trump makes somewhere around our great country, or around the world, (not to mention his daily out of control and incoherent Twitter rants), a percentage of the speech lacks any basis in either fact, reality, morality or basic human decency.
Most of these speeches also feature information that is occasionally marginalizing of our allies, debasing of our values, attacking victims of crimes or furthering some sort of policy damaging to the safety of the world and/or attempting to set back human social progress by decades.
The loaning of your balloon would require the blessings of the original artist who created the masterpiece.
It would also require the investment of local and national US charities to support the costs of shipping and displaying the balloon.
We appreciate your courage in approving this display for London. And for your willingness to speak out both in this display and by your actions in support of human rights and decency.
With every good wish for you Mr Mayor, and for the citizens of your wonderful city.
