New statue replaces Colston statueDownload
© Licensed to London News Pictures; 15/07/2020; Bristol, UK. People view and photograph a new statue of a black lives matter protestor, Jen Reid, which has been placed on the plinth from where the statue of slave trader Edward Colston was pulled down with ropes and thrown into Bristol docks on 07 June during an All Black Lives/Black Lives Matter protest that made headlines around the world. The new sculpture is titled "A Surge of Power (Jen Reid) 2020" by artist Marc Quinn and is made of black resin and steel and was put up around dawn this morning without any permission from Bristol City council. Jen Reid was at the previous protest on 07 June which was in protest for the memory of George Floyd, a black man who was killed on May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis in the US by a white police officer kneeling on his neck for nearly 9 minutes. The killing of George Floyd has seen widespread protests in the US, the UK and other countries. Photo credit: Simon Chapman/LNP.
