UK: 40,000 protest against Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ in London

30 January 2017

Over 40,000 people flooded the streets of London on Monday to protest against U.S President Donald Trump’s travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries. In reaction to the ban, protesters are demanding that Trump be banned from entering the U.K for state visits.

Protesters took to the streets denouncing Trump, holding sings such as “Let them in” … .

At the time of writing, some 1.5 million people signed an official U.K. petition calling for Donald Trump to be prevented from making official state visits to the UK.

Britain tells May: keep Trump out

Millions want billionaire bigot blocked from state visit

PRESSURE mounted on Theresa May to pull the plug on Donald Trump’s state visit yesterday after a petition to bar her new pal from Britain sailed past the one million mark.

The petition, which smashed the 100,000 figure required to trigger a debate in Parliament within hours, comes as Theresa May faces a backlash with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn leading calls for the invitation to be withdrawn.

Ms May was met by an angry crowd chanting: “No Trump. No KKK. No fascist USA,” as she left Brexit talks in Cardiff yesterday.

In an earlier statment the PM said she was “very happy” to invite Mr Trump for the visit despite the growing outrage over his travel ban.

Thousands gathered for demonstrations across the country last night as Jeremy Corbyn slammed Mr Trump’s controversial travel ban as outrageous, illegal and immoral.

The Labour leader wrote to Ms May again urging her to withdraw her invitation, pointing out that Mr Trump’s policy breaches the 1951 Refugee Convention, committing Britain, the US and 142 other states to accept refugees without regard to their race, religion or country of origin.

He said MPs and the public were “shocked and appalled by [her] inability to stand up for the values of rule of law, human rights and religious liberty” be refusing to rescind the invite.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson was grilled in the Commons as his Labour counterpart Emily Thornberry stormed: “When it comes to human rights, when it comes to women’s rights, when it comes to torture and the treatment of minorities, President Trump is already descending down a very dangerous slope.”

And Dennis Skinner accused the government of walking “hand in hand with another fascist, Trump” and demanded Mr Johnson “ban the visit.”

GMB equality officer Kamaljeet Jandu slammed Mr Johnson’s “waffling response” to the travel ban as “inadequate and insulting” saying it will “lead to more racial violence and abuse of Muslims and people of colour in Britain.”

Terror experts warned that Mr Trump’s travel ban would be exploited by the far right and Islamist extremists.

Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation David Anderson QC said: “The far right and separatist Islamists both promote the myth that Muslims cannot integrate into Western society.

“This travel ban will be used by both groups in service of that agenda.”

Former Labour leader Ed Miliband agreed, telling Radio 4’s World At One programme the ban would be a recruiting tool for Isis: “I don’t believe the state visit can go ahead in these circumstances.”

Downing Street said its position had not changed. “An invitation has been extended and accepted,” a spokesman said.

USA: Golden State Warriors [basketball] coach Steve Kerr expressed dismay over President Donald Trump’s executive order that bans citizens of seven majority Muslim countries from entering the United States. Kerr spoke about the administration’s travel ban following a 113-111 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night, calling it a “horrible idea.” “As someone whose family member was a victim of terrorism, having lost my father, if we’re trying to combat terrorism by banishing people from coming to this country, by really going against the principles of what our country’s about and creating fear, it’s the wrong way to go about it,” Kerr said: here.
