Recall that the protesters from the American city of Portland demolished on Sunday night, October 11, the statues of the former presidents of the United States Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln in a declaration of “anger” towards Columbus Day, according to the Associated Press.
Protesters called the event “Indigenous People’s Day” in response to a federal holiday in the United States on Monday named after Christopher Columbus.
The two monuments are the latest statues that were torn down in a wave of protests following the killing of African-American George Floyd by Minneapolis police.
