Petition Erect a statue, bust or plaque to commemorate Marx and Engels' time in Jersey
This year is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx, one of history's most important political philosophers and one of the most influential people of the modern era. A monument of some sort should be erected to commemorate Marx and Friedrich Engels' time in Jersey.
Many places have statues or plaques that commemorate the presence of an important historical figure. Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels developed one of the world's most influential philosophies - Marxism - and were incredibly influential in recent historical events. Their ideas inspired hundreds of millions of people and the fact they came to Jersey is a great marketing angle for certain types of tourists and deserves to be physically commemorated in one way or another.
