The document has already amassed more than 2,500 signatures. “Previously it was the government alone asking for Egyptian artifacts,” Monica Hanna, an archaeologist who co-founded the restitution campaign, told CBS News this week. “But today this is the people demanding their own culture back,” Hanna predicted that the stone and other objects are “definitely” going to be repatriated, “it is just a matter of when.”
