Precious sculptures, which include the Elgin Marbles, were taken from the Parthenon in the early 1800s and were later sold to the British government and placed in the British Museum. Many believe that these sculptures may have been obtained illegally and should be returned to their rightful home...
Ever since 1820 the Greek Government has claimed that marbles should be returned to Athens on moral grounds. A new Acropolis Museum has been completed and has space for the missing sculptures once they are returned.
Your signature will put pressure on the British Museum to return the Parthenon Sculptures. Other countries have set a precedent by returning fragments of the Parthenon and we need to act now to make sure that the rest of the sculptures are returned to their rightful home. Sign the petition today!
