Replace the Colston Statue with a Black Individual

Change to the Petition

Following contact with an individual who informed me that Stephenson's family were not keen with a statue to him. This is understandable and I made the suggestion of Stephenson without contacting him or his family.

In response to this and in desire to not overpower black voices, I have changed the conditions of the petition to make politicians in Bristol communicate with the black community of Bristol to find a solution they prefer. There are still two nominations I have made to encourage discussion as to who should be honoured, Princess Campbell and James Peters.

I hope that other white activists make sure to analyse their behaviour so they do not lead, rather respond to what Bristol's black community wants.
