Banksy makes t-shirt in support of defendants in the Colston case. 11 December 2021

In his own words:

“Next week the four people charged with pulling down Colston’s statue in Bristol are going on trial. I’ve made some souvenir shirts to mark the occasion. Available today 11th December from various outlets in the city (all proceeds to the defendants so they can go for a pint). One per person, £25 each plus VAT. Details on the Ujima Radio breakfast show from 9am.”

A few hours later, the first Colston-tees started popping up at eBay at GBP 1,250.00 apiece.

At 4 PM, Banksy’s PR woman Jo Brooks communicated: “Banksy t-shirt drops in Bristol have now sold out.”
