Trump not welcome in England

This video from London, England says about itself:

(10 Nov 2016) Several hundred protesters gathered outside the US embassy in London on Wednesday to show their opposition to US President-elect Donald Trump.

Stand up to Racism founder Weyman Bennett, who organised the protest, said: “We respect that he’s been elected but we respect nothing about the man.”

Some members of far-right groups including the English Defence League (EDL) held a counter-protest.

Trump not welcome in northern England

Monday 8th May 2017

NORTHERN workers will mobilise to keep “bastard” Donald Trump out of Britain, trade unionists declared on Saturday.

Martin Levy moved a motion at Northern TUC warning the conference of the dangers posed by the shift to the right in world politics.

“In France this weekend the second round in the elections for president takes place. The choice is between a former investment banker and a fascist,” he said.

Trump supports torture. He is a misogynist, a racist, Islamaphobic. He bombed Syria. He uses far-right rhetoric, supporting capitalist greed and attacking trade unions.

“Why should we be bothered about that? Because Theresa May went to Washington to talk about trade deals,” he said, warning that the US president would certainly attach anti-union conditions to any deals.

“He has been invited on a state visit to Britain. His values are not wanted here,” Mr Levy added.

Fellow delegate Pat Buttle seconded the motion, saying: “I’m not having my taxes spent on that bastard! We should resist this visit.”

She said she is in support of “the most widespread and massive protests against Mr Trump to show Prime Minister Theresa May that his policies are not welcome here.”

Ms Buttle said that through Darlington TUC links with a local sixth form college that had an exchange trip with US students, she had learned how young people in the US were mobilising against Trump and his damaging policies.

The 140 delegates voted unanimously to support campaigns opposing Mr Trump’s visit.
