Founding member of Countering Colston, Green party city councillor and former Lord Mayor, Cleo Lake has a lot to say on the big questions of politics, race, history and the future of Bristol and beyond. 

Unafraid to speak truth to power, Cleo has challenged Mayor Marvin Rees on not having confronted Edward Colston’s legacy, having herself swiftly removed his portrait from the Lord Mayor’s office. A leading voice for reparations for the legacy and current damage of slavery and colonialism, Cleo is currently running for election as Deputy Leader of the English Green Party.
