Edward Colston

Protesters pulled down a statue of Edward Colston in Bristol – but other buildings and street names remain.
Slaver Edward Colston's statue stood in the city centre for 125 years before protesters pulled it down and dumped it in the harbour. Now it's gone, what will replace it?
Remarks came as Downing Street refused to say if the prime minister personally thought the statue of slave trader Edward Colston was abhorrent.
A statue of 17th century slave-trader Edward Colston was torn down in Bristol as part of an anti-racism demonstration. Protests have been held around the world after the death of George Floyd, a Black man who died in police custody.
But Labour leader stresses it should have been removed peacefully: "You can't, in 21st-century Britain, have a slaver on a statue.”
The elected mayor, who is of Jamaican heritage, said he "could not pretend" he felt "any real sense of loss" after anti-racist demonstrators pulled down the monument.
Bristol City Council has submitted the application to its own planning department.
'I won’t be comfortable sharing [my office] with the portrait of Colston.'
