Leipzig plan to rename Richard Wagner Platz ‘Refugees Welcome Place’main
Wagner loyalists in Leipzig are putting up a petition to stop the city from accepting a Green Party proposal to rename the square that honours the city’s most famous son.
While we recognise the need to acknowledge Wagner’s birthplace, there would be a certain poetic justice in deposing the old racial supremacist in favour of a multicultural kindlier, Deutschland.
Here‘s the pro-Wagner petition.
Anyone care to put up an opposing one?
