Colston Four verdict: What should happen next?
The fall of the Colston Statue was one of the main inspirations behind PoliNations.
Following the trial, our Creative Director Angie Bual joined other #Bristol locals in discussing what the verdict means to them and spoke to the BBC saying:
“To be found not guilty of something that we literally saw happen, it did surprise me. But I think it was a bold decision and is validating. We're one of the most unequal societies in Britain. We have to revisit our history to understand why we are a multicultural nation. We've been trying to get it pulled down or the name changed since the '70s and it took an act like this to take it away. Our legal system has acknowledged that citizens can have a role in their future. I think it is enough. We don't need to pull down any more statues.”
