Extinction Rebellion (XR) vandals today defaced the statue of Winston Churchill in Parliament Square by spray-painting the words ‘is a racist’ on the base of the monument.

The World War Two Prime Minister’s statue was vandalised again today, months after the monument was defaced twice by Black Lives Matter protesters using the same words in June.
XR protesters said they saw a ‘young kid’ fleeing from the statue moments before being arrested by police, Guido Fawkes reported.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed a man had been arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage to the statue on Thursday evening.
At the same location earlier this afternoon, police arrested at least 13 topless female XR protesters, who chained themselves to railings surrounding Parliament with bike locks in a bid to expose what they called the ‘bare truth’ about the climate crisis.
A group of protesters this evening also chained themselves to a pink boat, daubed with the words ‘Tell The Truth’, just outside Parliament.
They were part of a larger group from the XR campaign, which have used attention-grabbing techniques to highlight the threat to the planet.
