I attended the All Party Committee on Cultural Property this afternoon and could not fail to notice a mask that had been added to the statue of Oliver Cromwell at Westminster. This was one of a series of statues that formed part of a Greenpeace protest on environmental issues relating to air pollution (“Eight arrests after Greenpeace protesters scale London monuments“, 18 April 2016).
