#StandUpToTrump: Diane Abbott, Shadow Home Secretary to join mass protest Saturday 4th February
Shadow Home Secretary Dianne Abbott is to join tens of thousands of protestors on Saturday who will be marching on Downing Street from the US embassy. They will be opposing Trump’s Muslim ban and demanding Theresa May withdraws her offer to the US President to come to Britain.
Recent days have seen massive protests across the world with over 100,000 joining the London Women’s March and 30,000 at Downing Street on Monday this week.
Sabby Dhalu from Stand Up To Racism said: “On Saturday there will be another massive show of opposition to Trump in London with campaigners including Muslim organisations coming to Central London to send a clear message to Theresa May that Trump’s not welcome here”.
Saturday’s demonstration is not the end of the campaign.
Weyman Bennett from Stand Up To Racism said: “On 18 February Stand Up To Racism, Stop the War and the People’s Assembly are organising a #StandUpToTrump summit in London, and then on the 20 February the petition opposing Trump’s visit will be debated in parliament. Anti-Trump groups are calling for a day of action on that day with Stand Up To racism, Stop the War and the People’s Assembly calling on people to descend on parliament”.
Trump’s Muslim ban and his plans to “build a wall” to keep out Mexican migrants are amongst the most oppressive moves by any US president in history. He is not welcome here!
Stand Up To Racism is also organising major national March Against Racism demos in London, Glasgow and Cardiff on Saturday 18 March, supported by the TUC.
