Out with the slave trader, in with black power.

The statue of Edward Colston has been unofficially replaced with a sculpture of a Black Lives Matter protester.
TONIGHT: Channel 4 News speaks to protester Jen Reid and artist Marc Quinn who are behind the sculpture which has been unofficially placed on the plinth where slaver Edward Colston once stood - at 7 on 4.
Protester Jen Reid told Channel 4 News: “I raised my hands for George Floyd. I raised my hands for all the people who’ve died at the hands of the police for being black. To show people who think we don’t matter that we do matter.”
