Hamilton mayor suffers from abuse after Captain Hamilton statue removal | RNZ News – Racism is a global illness – New Zealand

Vitriolic emails have even referred to lynching – all because of the statue of Captain Hamilton, which was removed from the city’s Civic Square earlier this month.

It was removed the day before a Black Lives Matter march after a member of the public threatened to forcibly remove it as well as a formal request from local iwi Waikato-Tainui.
