This petition asks for our city to rename all streets which glorify slave owners of the past. In particular, Dundas Street and Dundas House which are dedicated to Henry Dundas, plantation owner and Conservative politician who was responsible for delaying the abolition of the slave trade for 15 years. 

Our monuments, buildings and streets honour those who profited from the Transatlantic Slave Trade. In line with the city of Glasgow, it is time to take their names down and pave the way to offer recognition to those who ought to be so honoured.
