Black Live Matters Protests are going crazy all over the World. In London, we have seen how things went south for the people as they have struggled a lot and everyone is protesting. Even in Bristol, we have seen that the statue of the 17th century of slave trader Edward Colston was pulled down by the protestor and later they throw it away in the river.
You all must know that the statues of Winston Churchill and Mahatma Gandhi are situated in Parliament Square and for the safety measurement authorities have decided to cover the figure for an uncertain time until these protests go down. The statues of Churchill and Gandhi were targeted during Sunday’s large demonstration in London so they want to make sure that nothing wrong happens to them.
The reports are coming that the protestors have planned another demonstration for this weekend and to be safe from it London’s local officials boarded up statues of Churchill, Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, and Cenotaph to be on the safe side though that could prevent the protestor for while but they could do anything they want if they get their hands on those things.
Sources are also claiming that the local council has confirmed that the Gandhi statue on Belgrave Road and many other statues along with street and building names could be the next target. You must know that the Prime Minister of the country, Boris Johnson said, “absurd and shameful that Churchill’s statue has been so targeted.”
Also, the PM tweeted and said, “The statue of Winston Churchill in Parliament Square is a permanent reminder of his achievement in saving this country – and the whole of Europe – from a fascist and racist tyranny”. Also, he added that whatever is going on is very shameful. Even he said that yes sometime Churchill expressed the opinions that were and are unacceptable to us today, but he was a hero, and he fully deserves his memorial.
