Remove the Robert Peel Statue from Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester #BLM #RepealPeel

I think all statutes in the UK which honor those who were slave owners or were pro slavery should be taken down. We live in a time in which the government claims to be diverse and offers equality to all, however we still have large monuments of the slave trade. The UK do not want schools to teach pupils about this countries role in the slave trade, however they want to keep hold of statues which commemorates those involved in the brutality of the slaves in the UK and in other countries under British control at the time. We should have statues to celebrate those who fought against slavery and those who survived such a horrible time in British history.
