Stop Suffragette statue being removed from Parliament
Just a few days after we handed in our huge petition to Westminster Council, the planning application to move the statue was withdrawn!
Sir Niel Thorne, the former MP behind the bid to move the staue of Emmiline Pankhurst from its historic home said:
“we realised considerable pressure was being put on Westminster City Council, who’d find it more difficult to approve moving the statue.”
Thanks to our pressure, Emmeline Pankhurst will remain by Paliament - thank you!
