1823 Slave Rebellion monument unveiled at the Kitty Sea-wall
The 1823 Coalition of the Parade Ground monument, continues to voice its opposition against the location.
Culture Minster Dr. Frank Anthony said a site selection committee was established and advertisements were placed several times in the newspapers for proposals to be submitted on where the monument should be placed.
President Donald Ramotar during his remarks at the unveiling ceremony said the monument should be seen as a reminder of the struggles endured by our ancestors.
The monument’s location is surrounded with a wooden picket fence on three sides. Provision for benches is also part of the layout of the site with a garden-like setting. The bronze sculpture was designed and built by US-based Guyanese, Ivor Thom.
