People Share 29 Statues That Are Better Than The Ones Torn Down By The Protesters

Published 4 weeks ago

If you’re following the news, you probably heard that protestors took down the statue of Edward Colston, an English merchant who was known for being involved in slave trade, in Bristol. Well, the takedown of this statue actually inspired other protesters to tear down numerous other statues who depicted slave owners and other human rights abusers, like Christopher Columbus and Robert Milligan. However, this doesn’t mean that all monuments are dedicated to terrible people. People on Twitter are sharing photos of monuments dedicated to activists and revolutionaries who fought for peace and equality, and all of us should learn more about them.

Check out the monuments dedicated to heroes all around the world in the gallery below!

Aušrys Uptas

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
