All you need to do is fight back

No amount of words can substitute for action, as a group of former Boy Scouts proved in defense of Lord Baden-Powell’s memory:

A council has dramatically abandoned its plan to take down a seaside statue of Lord Baden-Powell today after his supporters blocked a removal team brought in following pressure from Black Lives Matter protesters who branded him racist, homophobic and fascist.

Former Scouts, some from more than 100 miles away, had rushed to Dorset and formed a ring of steel around the bronze monument, fending off a disposal crew in Poole Quay at 7.30am as the campaign to remove 92 historic monuments in Britain hurtles on.

And this afternoon Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Councillor Mark Howell said that the removal is off for today because contractors didn’t want to work in a ‘circus’, adding:  ‘It is possible we might not take it away at all’.

If you’re not acting, you’re not doing anything. If you’re not fighting back, you’re surrendering.

Remember, they take your silence as consent.
