Reinstate the Edward Colston statue

We the undersigned In an act of sheer vandalism and criminal damage, the statue of Edward Colston was deliberately removed from its site and taken to the floating harbour and pushed in and where it now lays submerged. We the undersigned request that the statue is reinstated back to its original site.

Regardless of feelings Colston plays an important part in the history of Bristol and by no means someone to be celebrated. But we cannot have people attempting to blank history simply on the basis that they don't like it - otherwise, where does it stop?

In a way, this could be equated to a thousand people descending on Poland with the intent of burning Auschwitz to the ground. Totally unacceptable in every respect.

The city has to set a standard where deliberate criminal damage is sustained to public property. Again, otherwise, where does it stop?
