Erect Santa Anna statue in front of the Texas capitol

Esta petición conseguió 5 firmas

In the last few days there has been a lot of discussion about the problem of Confederate statuary and emblems on government property. One of the sides in this discussion believes in preserving these memorials as a historical reminder of different, long gone times.

Therefore, I propose the erection of a memorial statue of Antonio López de Santa Anna to commemorate the former ruler of Texas and the American south-west, and second-place winner of the Texas Revolution, as a reminder of one of the most celebrated historical episodes of Texas and the United States.

Despite the existence of many statues of celebrated pro-slavery Confederate fighters in the country, not a single monument exists to honor the memory of Santa Anna. Clearly this mistake must be amended, if we are to honor history equally for both winning and losing sides of civil wars.
