Save the Cordoba Mosque:
please, sign the petition.

Salvemos la Mezquita de Córdoba · Por una Mezquita-Catedral de todos

The Catholic church in Spain has been exploiting to it's financial advantage the World Heritage Site of the Cordoba Mosque (Mezquita) for decades.

They now even pretend to turn this public site into church estate. They actually have already banned the term Mezquita (Mosque) to impose religious monopoly, while the Mezquita is actually one of the few great universal paradigms of harmony between cultures (main reason why it was declared World Heritage in the first place).

Public pressure is needed towards the government of Andalusia to keep this monument as public property instead of loosing it to private, christian dominion.
Save the Mezquita: please, sign the petition.
