A historical marker memorializing an early 20th century Indian independence group that met in Astoria is missing.
The bronze metal sign attached to a metal pole recognizes the Ghadar Party, which met in May 1913 at the former site of the Finnish Socialist Hall. Driven by Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims along the west coast, the anti-colonialist party worked toward India’s independence from Britain.
Police received a report Friday morning that the marker, located at Maritime Memorial Park, was stolen. It had not been returned as of Monday morning.
Anyone with information about where the sign is or how it may have been stolen can contact Sgt. Andrew Randall at email@example.com or 503-325-4411.
