The Cross Rhodes Freedom Project says they are deeply pained by Christopher Columbus era but condemns defacing of statue

Director of The Cross Rhodes Freedom Project, Shabaka Kambon in response to the statue which was defaced ahead of Columbus Day, celebrated on October 9th said he urged persons not to take such action.

Kambon said he is deeply pained by the country’s’ past history during the Christopher Columbus era, but the Cross Rhodes Freedom Project Director still does not condone the actions of the statue being defaced.
