Protecting The Statues

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

English Parliament is set to announce legislation that will give police protection to statues and monuments.

Just like in America, public opinion about certain monumentalized people has shifted. Recently, a statue of a slave trader was torn down and thrown into the harbour in Bristol.

Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick said that these monuments should be “considered thoughtfully” and any decision about removing them should involve “planning permission and a consultation with local communities” and not “removed on a whim or at the behest of a baying mob.”
