Red Symbolism

This article on Boston Indymedia reports:
As of 3 o’clock this morning the statue of Christopher Columbus standing in the North End has been drenched with red paint. This stain is a symbolic action celebrating the collaborative efforts of the privileged and the oppressed in the fight for collective liberation.

Charming. Vandalism is 'symbolic'.

Previous examples (a very small sample) of such 'symbolism' here and here.

I wonder what they thought of the people of Bolivia tearing down statues of Che and defacing murals of him in La Paz and other cities, during their anti-Socialist protests in the past few months
