People Share 29 Statues, Better Than The Statues Overthrown By The Protesters

If you follow this news, you may have heard that protesters shot down a statue of Edward Colston in Bristol, a businessman known for his involvement in the slave trade. Well, the demolition of this statue actually inspired other protesters to tear down many other statues that portray slave owners and other human rights abusers such as Christopher Columbus and Robert Milligan. However, this does not mean that all monuments are dedicated to terrible people. People on Twitter are sharing photos of monuments commemorating activists and revolutionaries who fought for peace and equality, and all of us should learn more about them.

Check out the monuments dedicated to heroes around the world in the gallery below!
