Why this petition matters

Started by David Moore

Dave Prowse, brought up on the Southmead housing estate in Bristol.
Yes, 'Darth Vader' - but he always said the work he was most proud of was as the 'Green Cross Code Man' - working with kids, he pulled his showbiz friends into his campaigning which saves 100s of 1000s of kids from death and injuries.
He toured the country visiting schools relentlessly - 3 schools a day, 5 days a week, for 14 years

What a top bloke :)

So, let's get him on the Colston plinth. A person who puts their community ahead of themselves is surely the type of role model we need. Flying in the face of all the trappings of the high-life, Dave worked hard at serving the nation.
And if the statue was half-Vader-half-GCCM - back to back - it would makes us smile. Not only for the oddity of having a Vader statue at the Harbourside (which could be a draw for fans from around the world) but to be reminded Vader was really a kind-hearted Bristolian! :)

PS - If you *really* want this to happen then Please Sign And Share! :) (then Share again!)
We'll need signatures to make this happen :) So let's keep it rolling....
May the Force be with Us!
