  1. Thank you to the British Government and Museum for preserving so beautifully the Parthenon Sculptures from the ravages of time and man.
    But now, your run is over. Please return these stolen marbles to their rightful owners, the people of Greece. Reunite these beautiful and priceless works of art with their brothers and sisters so painstakingly and lovingly restored and exhibited in the gorgeous new Acropolis Museum. It is where they belong!
    And thank you, to the founders of this website and to all persons worldwide who strive for the return of these unique works of art to their proper home, a home that was completed more than 2500 years ago and waits with open arms to welcome the prodigals back.
