'Friends of Marconi Plaza' Fight Against Columbus Statue Removal

The Dom Giordano Program
Thursday, August 13th
Center City attorney George Bochetto, representation of ‘Friends of Marconi Plaza,’ joins the Dom Giordano Program to discuss the decision by Philadelphia’s Art Commission in an 8-1 vote to remove the Christopher Columbus statue from Marconi Plaza in South Philadelphia. Bochetto reflects on what has been done in the fight against the removal so far, and lays forth what he plans on doing going forward to keep the statue where it belongs. Bochetto argues that there is supposed to be a process and statutes involved that need to be followed, which has been completely ignored when dealing with the Columbus statue. (Photo by Getty Images)
