This man did great things for the city, rightfully challenging awful racist practices through his brave actions. He also served his country in the RAF in addition to his activism. Having a statue of this man in place of the slave trader would make me extremely proud to call Bristol my home.

I think Paul Stephenson would be a great replacement statue with a plaque about him and also about Colston who's statue used to stand on the plinth as evidence of changes as a comparison of Bristol residents through time.
