Removal & Replacement of Christopher Columbus

It's time for change! Let your voice heard and dreams be envisioned. The proposed  idea is to replace the Columbus statue at  The Government House, N.P. Bahamas. The funds raised will go directly into the design and  construction of a replacement statue. Your voice can and should be heard! The general public is invited in this part of the campaign to sumit designs for which the  final three selections  will be made public. The winning design would be voted via social media and a select panel of judges. The winning  design will also be promoted via all  social media platforms and receive 5%  of funds raised. All rights to the design under the copyright laws of the Bahamas would be awarded to the recipient. This allows all members of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas a chance to leave a legacy. The chosen design will be  sculpted by renowned Bahamian Sculptor Andret John. The theme can be any subject matter pertaining to the spirit of the Bahamian people. Political or Civic Leader's would be  accepted.  Let us protest the way we know how in respect and love. It's time for our voices to be heard.
