The news of the death of Alexei Navalny spread throughout the world. Migrants from Russia came out to a rally in New York on February 16 to say goodbye to the opposition politician and express their outrage at his death. According to the site, Russians created a petition to rename the street on which the Russian consulate is located in New York.

Alexey Navalny is a famous Russian oppositionist who advocated democracy in Russia. Despite repeated prison sentences and attempted murder, he continued to fight corruption. The part of 91st Street where the Russian Consulate is located (between Madison and Fifth Avenue) is proposed to be renamed Alexei Navalny Way. This will serve as a powerful symbol of solidarity and a reminder of his bravery.

In New York City, it has long been a tradition to name streets after people who have made significant contributions to society or championed human rights. These include Raoul Wallenberg Walk, named after the Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews during World War II, and Nelson Mandela Corner, named after the South African anti-apartheid revolutionary.

By renaming the neighborhood, activists not only want to honor Navalny's bravery, but also remind Russian consulate staff—and all passersby—of the importance of democratic values ​​and human rights.

“We urge New York City to seriously consider this proposal as it represents more than just a name change. This is a statement that New York stands with those fighting for freedom around the world,” the petition says.

Activists call for signing petition, if you believe in standing up for democracy and human rights around the world.
