Petition to save Freedom Plaza/Pulaski

https://www.change.org/p/council-of-the-district-of-columbia-help-us-save-freedom-plaza-in-washington-dc

"The Council of DC has plans of ďeliminating & replacingĒ Freedom Plaza. Sign this petition to let them know where you stand! Freedom Plaza was renamed after the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and also holds his time capsule that isnít to be opened until 2088. Not only is this space a National Park but a National Monument. People come from all over the world to see Freedom Plazaís inlaid stone surface that depicts part of Pierre Charles LíEnfantís plan for the city of Washington. Not only is it a one of a kind place on earth but itís also a cultural melting pot and one of DCís loudest places to make your voices heard. With protests, live music, dance, unicycle games of hockey, Go-Goís, food trucks (bbq cook offs), also a long-standing home of DCís skateboarding scene, and so much more. We need your help to let the Council members know that this monument needs more love, support, and care! Instead of ďeliminating & replacingĒ such an important piece of history! Please Sign! Thank you!"

There's gonna be hella people at Indiana if pulaski gets shut down. Usually where I go if it's too packed at pulaski. Bummer, we need people that live in the DC zip code and surrounding areas to sign. I just sent this to my homies up there.

Just signed it...Pulaski is such a sick spot and definitely needs to remain the life blood of the DC skate scene.

Hard to believe they would want to destroy it. So much history there besides the legend status to skateboarders. That plaza is a true work of art and a magical place to set foot in.

Would be a shame to see it go. Pulaski and Muni have to be the last standing of the iconic plaza/ledge spots from the 90's that still stand in close to their original form in the States given what has happened to Love, Santa Monica Courthouse, EMB, and Pier 7.
