Danes call for 'new Statue of Liberty' memorial in New York

  • Comment

The Danish city of Copenhagen wants fellow EU capitals to help fund the erection of 'a new Statue of Liberty' in New York to mark the 11 September terror attacks. Deputy mayor Soeren Pind, who is in charge of Copenhagen's buildings, streets, parks and monuments, said the monument should reflect 'the evil and its destruction and the good that always wins. It should be a memorial for those who were killed.'

The Danish capital's mayor, Jens Kramer Mikkelsen, will present the idea to the other 14 EU capitals through their cooperation platform, Eurocities, later this year, Pind said.

He added that the City of London's Lord Mayor, Sir David Howard, already has offered a positive reaction. The project is expected to take three to four years to complete.
