Petition: Save the Rosa Luxemburg plaque!

Plaque commemorating the birthplace of Rosa Luxemburg in Zamosc, removed on 13 March 2018

The plaque commemorating Rosa Luxemburg’s birthplace has been removed. Please support the campaign for its restoration – sign below

“We the undersigned protest against the removal of a plaque commemorating the birthplace of Rosa Luxemburg in the Polish city of Zamosc. We demand that the local government authorities in Zamosc return the plaque to its rightful place.

Rosa Luxemburg is a renowned historical figure of the international left. She was a believer in socialism, democracy and internationalism. Luxemburg was imprisoned on numerous occasions throughout her life and in 1919 was tragically killed by the Freikorps troops in Berlin.

She was also an important and original left-wing thinker and writer, whose work continues to have a lasting influence around the world. We believe that the removal of this plaque is unjustified and is another example of how history is being ideologically distorted by the authorities in Poland

Her memory and legacy should be preserved in the place of her birth. Rosa Luxemburg has an indisputable place in world history as well as in the history of the city of Zamosc!”

This petition has jointly been created by transform!’s member organisation Fundacja Naprzód (Forward Foundation) and the Red, and Red and Black History Campaign. Action supported by: The Social Forum Discussion Club

    Rosa Luxemburg is a leading analyst of capitalism, symbol of internationalism and the fight against fascism. But as a fighter and leader she is an inspiration tp women and girls.
