Joe Pajak started this petition to UK Parliament and 1 other.
Statues of slave traders have no place in a civilised world. Statues of slave traders should be removed from all our towns. It’s a sad truth that a significant element of our wealth was derived from the slave trade – but this should not have to be celebrated in our public spaces.
We must use this significant moment as a catalyst for change to tackle racism, discrimination, and inequality. The Government must ensure that local authorities and relevant organisations undertake a formal and thorough review of all statues that have connections with the slave trade.
