In light of Black Lives Matter protestors in Bristol removing the statue of slave trader, philanthropist and merchant Edward Colston, far-right groups organised to protect war memorials which they saw as a symbol of a White British identity.

Chaired by Chardine Taylor-Stone, with guests Annie Olaloku-Teriba, Dr Adam Elliot-Cooper and Dr Edson Burton.
