On June 7th, 2020, the statue of Edward Colston in Bristol City Centre was pulled down by an anonymous group of Black Lives Matter protestors following a global uprising against police brutality in the wake of George Floyd's murder by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. This article combines a first-person account of the build-up to the statue falling and its aftermath with reflections on some of the broader debates, historical and current, around public monuments, state violence, and collective life.
