No one wants a damn slave owner statue in the heart of Watsonville, let alone across the street from an amazing college.

George Washington’s statue being in our city seems really out of place. We should have a statue that represents our community and its citizens instead.

Stop honoring slave-owners, kidnappers, committees of genocide and stop validating the racist notion that they should be honored despite such heinous acts. Stop giving power and validation to those who insist on viewing history from the perspective of always deferring to our racist, murdering “founding fathers”.

Thanks for adding your voice.

We should have a statue that more represent our community of immigrants and agriculture. Instead there’s are record of GW ordering an enslaved man to be whipped for walking on the lawn. He also ordered Indians to be killed
