Take down the John Mitchell statue

Take down the John Mitchell statue

John Mitchell was an advocate for the trans-Atlantic slave trade. His statue should be removed from Newry city centre.

Why is this important?

We should not have a statute of a white supremacist proudly on show in Northern Ireland. It should be removed as a mark of solidarity and support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
