Columbus Statue In Providence Defaced

Feather News

The Boston Globe reported that red paint was thrown on a Christopher Columbus statue in Providence, R.I., and a sign that read "murderer" was hung around the statue's waist.

The statue was seen in the defaced condition on Monday, which is recognized by many as the Colombus holiday and others as the day of the indigenous resistance.

According to the article, "A representative of the Sons of Italy (told) WPRO-AM that he would like the vandalism to be investigated as a hate crime against Italians."
