Graffiti has appeared on a second statue in the Capital following the Black Lives Matter protests.

Words have been spray-painted on the base of the Robert Dundas statue in Melville Street saying: “Son of slaver Dundas colonialist profiteer”, “George Floyd” and “BLM.”

The statue is one of several across the city to be targeted following the anti-racism protests that took place in Holyrood Park over the weekend where thousands of activists descended on the Capital to show their support for action against racism.
