Charlottesville Vice-Mayor: It’s Not Enough to Cover Statues; We Have to Move Forward with Removal

‘We have to move forward in terms of removing the statue’

EXCERPT:

BELLAMY: "And while we are mourning not only the death of Miss Heather Heyer and the individuals who lost their lives, we’re also mourning everyone who has given their lives and fought not only for freedom, but for civil rights and equity of all people. That is why we chose to shroud the statues. But no, it's not enough. It kind of feels like to a certain extent a neighbor who’s been doing something for a very long time and now we’re finally addressing that issue which they’ve been doing, but it’s not enough for us to just cover the statue. We have to move forward in terms of removing the statue."
