‘Refugees Welcome’ sign on the Statue of Liberty

Via NY Curbed (HT Empire Report):

Earlier today, a group of protestors unfurled a large banner reading “Refugees Welcome” on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. A Twitter account, Alt Lady Liberty, began posting photos from the monument this afternoon, and noted that “patriots unfurled a massive banner at the foot of Lady Liberty.”

The National Parks Service confirmed to Curbed that the banner was placed on the Statue, and other photos taken today show the enormous sign stretched across the bottom of the monument. As of right now, it’s unclear who was behind the banner, or how it was placed on the statue in the first place.

The Statue of Liberty has become a symbol of sorts for protestors in the weeks since the Trump administration took office, particularly in the wake of the executive order that banned travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries, as well as halting the arrival of Syrian refugees.
