© Licensed to London News Pictures; 19/09/2020; Bristol, UK. People view and photograph a new statue and placards against child exploitation and child sex trafficking which have been placed on the plinth from where the statue of slave trader Edward Colston was pulled down and thrown into Bristol docks on 07 June during an All Black Lives/Black Lives Matter protest in memory of George Floyd, a black man who was killed on May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis in the US by a white police officer, that made headlines around the world. The artist behind this new statue against child exploitation is not known. Since the Colston statue was pulled down various other statues and artworks have been placed on the empty plinth without permission from Bristol City council, including a statue "A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020" by sculptor Marc Quinn of protester Jen Reid who was at the previous protest on 07 June.
