Abstract: Repentinamente, por todo o lado, parece que só se fala de estátuas. Há até quem mencione uma ‘guerra das estátuas’. Mas nada poderia estar mais distante da verdade. As estátuas, apesar de toda a sua carga simbólica, não são o alvo dos protestos, do mesmo modo que as defesas imediatamente erigidas para ‘proteger’ as estátuas e a História, nada têm a ver, nem com as estátuas nem com a História, mas sim com a salvaguarda de privilégios acumulados ao longo de séculos e a manutenção do âmago inumano que serve de fundação às nossas sociedades.
Suddenly, everyone seems to be talking about statues. Some even go as far as mentioning a ‘war of statues’. But nothing could be further from the truth. Statues, for all their symbolic charge, are not really the aim of the protests, just as the defences so quickly mounted to ‘protect’ statues and History are not about either the statues or History, but about preserving centuries of privilege and maintaining the very core of inhumanity upon which our societies have been built.
