Anti-Trump demonstration Amsterdam tomorrow, Dam to Museumplein


This video says about itself:

14 January 2017

A week of protests ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration as U.S. president kicks off with a civil rights march in Washington by activists angry over the Republican’s comments on minority groups including Muslims and Mexicans. Nathan Frandino reports.

Tomorrow, 20 January 2017, will be the inauguration of Donald Trump as president of the USA. There will be many protests against this, in the USA and elsewhere.

Also in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Contrary to an earlier post on this blog, not all of the 20 January demonstration there will be at the United States consulate, Museumplein. The demonstration will start at 7pm at the Dam Square.

From the site Stop de haat in the Netherlands:

STOP THE HATE! TOGETHER AGAINST TRUMP AND WILDERS!

Protest

Friday evening, 20th January

7pm, Dam Square
8.30pm, American Consulate (Museumplein 19)

We call on everyone who is concerned about the current political climate to join in this protest during the inauguration of Donald Trump as president of the United States. After decades of austerity policies he succeeded in winning the election with a campaign of racism and sexism. Trump will not improve the world, he will only serve the interests of the elite. His policies pose a direct threat to the climate and the position of women, immigrants, working people and the LGBT community. Together we speak out against this!

The demonstration is also against European politicians with similarities to Trump, like Geert Wilders in the Netherlands and Marine Le Pen in France. The slogans are:

Stop the cuts, people before profit!
Sexism and racism: less, less, less of it!

An allusion to the xenophobic saying by Geert Wilders that there should be ‘less, less, less’ Moroccans in the Netherlands

Stop warmongering!
Refugees are welcome, save lives!
Make the climate great again!

This is the video promoting the 20 January 2017 Amsterdam demonstration.

USA: Sister Marches are solidarity events inspired by the Women’s March on Washington, and organized by volunteers around the world. If you can’t make it to Washington, D.C. on January 21, join or host a Sister March near you”: here.
