APTOPIX Belgium Colonialism Congo Independence

A man places a t-shirt with a screenprint of deceased Congolese leader, Patrice Lumumba, over the bust of Belgium's King Leopold II, which has been damaged by red paint and graffiti at a park in Ghent, Belgium on Tuesday, June 30, 2020. Protests sweeping the world after George Floyd's death in the U.S. have added fuel to a movement to confront Europe's role in the slave trade and its colonial past. Leopold II is increasingly seen as a stain on the nation where he reigned from 1865 to 1909 with some demonstrators calling for his removal from public view. (AP Photo/Francisco Seco)
