BLM STATUE COMES DOWN AFTER 1 DAY

Posted on July 17, 2020


CFP: “A sculpture of a Black Lives Matter protester installed without authorization on the site where a monument to a 17th-century parliamentarian and slave trader was ripped down by protesters last month was taken down by the city after just one day, according to a report.”

“City workers carefully removed the statue of Jen Reid at dawn Thursday after it had been erected early Wednesday morning without the approval or knowledge of the city of Bristol in southwest England, the New York Times reported.
The artist, Marc Quinn, who created the resin and steelwork after seeing a photo of Reid holding her hand up near where the statue of Edward Colston had just been torn down, said in an interview he didn’t expect the statue to stay…”

Federalist: “The late Sen. Robert C. Byrd, the West Virginia Democrat and Senate majority leader who organized a Klan chapter in 1941 and filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964, is celebrated in the state, his name gracing over three dozen public works projects, including two federal courthouses, a dam on the Ohio border, libraries, community centers, roads, bridges, schools, and several university buildings throughout the state.”

The Reid statue was put up without permission.
