English: Monument to the Radical War unrest of 8 April 1820, when soldiers of the Port Glasgow Volunteers escorted five Radical prisoners to Greenock Jail, Bank Street, Greenock, then when stones and insults were hurled at them by the crowd of townsfolk, opened fire killing eight protesters, and wounding ten others.

The bronze sculpture by Angela Hunter of Innerleithen was unveiled on Saturday 26 September 2015. On the east side of Bank Street, stones inset into the retaining wall of the Well Park record the ages and names of those killed: feature created by Broughton-based landscape designer James Gordon

This view looks down Bank Street northwards to Cathcart Square: the (cream coloured) Dutch Gable building of 1755 is seen past the clasped hands, the building in the left foreground is the Mid Kirk of 1761. The Bridewell or jail, which opened in 1810, was sited immediately to the south of the Kirk, with an entrance onto Bank Street: it was demolished in 1886.

The photographic reproduction of this work is covered under United Kingdom law (Section 62 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988), which states that it is not an infringement to take photographs of buildings, or of sculptures, models for buildings, or works of artistic craftsmanship permanently located in a public place or in premises open to the public. This does not apply to two-dimensional graphic works such as posters or murals. See Commons:Freedom of panorama § United Kingdom for more information.

This work might not be available under a free license in the United States because it is based on an artwork or sculpture that may be protected by copyright under U.S. law. (Commons is hosted in the United States and as such U.S. law is applicable.)
  • In the source country of the artwork or sculpture, taking photographs of such works permanently located in a public place does not generally infringe on their copyright, under a principle known as "freedom of panorama".
  • In U.S. law there is no freedom of panorama for artwork or sculpture, and under the choice-of-law principle lex loci protectionis U.S. courts might apply U.S. freedom-of-panorama standards to this work, rather than the standards of the source country. However, in practice it is unsettled whether and how this approach would be applied in real world U.S. legal cases involving freedom-of-panorama elements.
The current policy on Commons is to accept photos of artwork and sculptures that are covered by freedom of panorama in their source country. This policy may change in the future, depending on the outcome of community discussions and new case law.
This is not a valid license tag on Commons; this file must be usable under freedom of panorama in its source country or it will be deleted.
