Protesters condemned for toppling slave trader statue in Bristol
The statue of Edward Colston which had stood for more than 120 years, has been toppled.
The Home Secretary Priti Patel has condemned its removal by anti-racism protesters and said it was "utterly disgraceful".
There were wild cheers as the statue was yanked off its plinth and later sprayed with paint and dumped in the harbour.

So these are the sort of thugs complaining they don’t get job offers, or are treated unfairly...... I wonder why 🤔
Rioters, Thugs, Looters......your protest has lost any credibility
This is 2020 and statues like these belong in a museum now, not in the public space.
Yep Bristol is a #diverse city, those knife crime stats show that.

Is priti secretly working to destroy the Tory party from within? It would be the only thing that would make sense to me!
They should have threw Priti Patel in the water as well.
I think there is an element of post-lockdown cabin fever in all of this.
Why the hell did a slave trader even have a statue in the first place?
They Did this To Saddam Hussain Statue in Iraq

Monuments are what they are – the physical representation of specific groups to tout their specific perspectives at specific times. Removing them will not “erase” history. Neither will removing them remedy historic evils. A dispassionate analysis of history, however, will provide greater insight into the evils, triumphs and attitudes of the past. Monuments, offensive and otherwise, provide narrow peep-holes into this fabric and nothing more.
This gonna be part of the world history.congratulations guys
This must have been good fun after long lockdown
I wonder if the Italian government will look at tearing down the Colosseum in Roam or the Egyptian government tearing down the pyramids??
Or does this only apply to the UK??

It was a monument of negativity........it's now a quiet space of positivity
Saves the council from having to remove it
Shooketh !!! 🙏🖤
if they want a divide then keep destroying the history, and hide from the truth, lets never speak of the past, never learn from the past and so whatever happened in the past does not matter.

The irony of chanting I can’t breathe during a covid outbreak. I fear for their souls.

Protest on Sunday's, clap on Thursday's and accept 80% end of the month.
That statue depicts a brutal time time in history but it did and would have continued to be a talking point by young and old and and remind people it is a history we should never ever repeat.
Bristol on top of the uk protesting table chart ✊🏾👏🏾
"In the end, no petition was needed."
But, there was one. A very small one of 10,000 signatories in a city with a population of half a million.
And yet people are putting the entire city at risk of further infection while shouting about democracy being underridden.
In less than 3 weeks, Bristol will be on the list of covid deaths again.
The Zebra Finch:
Sky news glorifying protestors again. Good that the comments are turned on again, I suppose sky don't like critism

You’d think the statue wouldn’t have even made it to the pavement without the local authority’s getting involved
