The Christian religion, the sacrifice of Polish troops and the memory of liberation from Nazi rule have all been desecrated by BLM activists when they graffitied the Black Madonna mosaic.
A mosaic based on the famous Polish Black Madonna icon has been defaced by BLM activists in the Dutch city of Breda. The cause of the vandalism is unclear, as the mosaic is dedicated to the city's liberation from Nazi rule with the help of Polish soldiers. The icon was chosen as a memorial because it is one of the greatest symbols of Polish Catholicism.

The mosaic is dedicated to Polish soldiers of General Maczek who liberated the city in 1944 from the German Nazis.
We denounce this act of vandalism, which is offensive to Poles and Catholics.
It is unclear whether the activists wanted to vent their adverse sentiments towards the Poles as a community or dark-complexioned people, or perhaps the abolition of Nazi rule or Christianity, but their vandalism has provoked a general outcry in Poland. Frans Ruczynski, chairman of the Genral Maczek Museum, said the graffiti had hurt the feelings of Polish people, adding that he did not understand what the point was. "The Black Madonna has nothing to do with oppression at all," he added, pointing out that Poland had nothing to do with colonisation in Africa.
The town has removed the graffiti, but the cleaning proceure posed noticeable risks as the Marian image is made of mosaic tiles.
