Take the Anthony Gormley Statue off the library roof

(Trigger warning: suicide)

In a sudden and unsettling move, UEA has decided - at a time of intense stress for students with exams and dissertation work - to stick up a statue of a person standing right on the edge of the library roof. 

Some students have said that this makes them uncomfortable, as from first glance it looks as if a human being is about to jump off the building. Many students will not be aware of the statue and so to suddenly impose this on them during an already stressful period is unfair.

This petition requests that UEA remove the statue and stop stressing students out with the constant image of someone who looks like they are about to take their own life.
