BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Chicago activists spent Wednesday in Baltimore.
They’re uniting with local Italian organizations, demanding the Christopher Columbus statue be restored near Little Italy.
The oldest statue of Columbus in the country was yanked down, broken and thrown into the Inner Harbor on July 4.
The “Hands Off Christopher Columbus” organization says it’s a slap in the face to Italian-Americans.
They’re now offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction of those responsible for the vandalism.
