A Globe for New York

I've been sent this petition to support what looks like an excellent project in New York Harbor.

"On Governors Island sits a dilapidated military fortification ... and it happens to have the identical blueprint as Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. We want to restore the fort and re-imagine the open courtyard as a vibrant performing arts center, however the National Park Service is about to disallow this proposal."

People from the UK are allowed to vote, it doesn't take a minute and is a good enough project to be worth an altruistic few seconds of your time even if you don't visit New York that often or at all. It is in these sorts of decisions by minor bureaucracies that public pressure can really make a difference.
