Colston 4 Statute Rejected

The bronze memorial to the 17th-Century slave merchant Edward Colston was torn down by the people of Britsol as a public act of rejection during a Black Lives Matter protest in Bristol in 2020.


Rhian Graham, Milo Ponsford, Jake Skuse and Sage Willoughby, known as the Colston 4, was a British court case surrounding the toppling of the statue of Edward Colston, involving four defendants accused of criminal damage in relation to the removal and dumping in the canal of the controversial statue in Bristol in 2020 during a protest.


The four defendants were acquitted by jury after a trial. As part of the campaign posters were pasted up across Bristol.
