ANYTHING TO SAY? A Monument to Courage
Unveiling Davide Dormino’s statue in tribute to Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden
Place: Alexanderplatz, Berlin
Date: Friday, 1 May 2015 at noon.
Celebrated Italian sculptor Davide Dormino will unveil his monument to freedom of speech and invites all supporters of freedom of information to come and take a stand with him in Alexanderplatz, Berlin. The life-size bronze statue, the fruit of more than a year of work, depicts the three people who have sacrificed their freedom for the public’s right to know standing on chairs to face the public. A fourth, empty chair waits beside them for any of us who want to stand with them. Come, stand on the chair, take your photo and show it to the world. This is your statue.
Sculptor Dormino will be available in Berlin for media interviews before and after the unveiling. Please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Supporters of the project include Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg, Norman Solomon of the Institute for Public Accuracy, Italian parliamentary Human Rights Committee Chairman Mario Marazziti, Roberto Saviano, Reporters sans Frontières, Henry Porter and Partito Pirata.
