Highlights of Second Stand Up to Trump Protest in London

In response to the xenophobic and racist executive order signed by Donald Trump, the new president of United States of America, which immediately barred entry to the US to any national of countries (namely Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen) which have been most damaged by past and present US adventurism and violence sponsored by the US government or its allies or carried out directly by the US military and/or those of its allies, regardless of whether these nationals were US residents/citizens, protests erupted around the world.

Following a nationwide round of protests on 30th of January 2017, around the UK, a second round of protests were held, in London, on the 4th of February 2017, as a repeat show of public disapproval of the executive order as well as disapproval of the reaction of United Kingdom’s prime minister, Theresa May, who had already invited Donald Trump to a state visit to the UK and refused to rebuke the executive order, which was signed by Trump shortly after her visit with him at the White House, where they were photographed holding hands while walking together.

This video shows highlights of protests held at the US embassy in London, followed by a march toward Whitehall, and further protests opposite Downing Street (the UK prime minister’s official residence).

Some of the common slogans shouted by demonstrators were:

No hate. No fear. Refugees are welcome here,
Say it loud. Say it clear. Refugees are welcome here,
Say it loud. Say it clear. Donald Trump’s not welcome here,
Theresa May, shame on you,
Shame on you Theresa (May), Fascist appeaser,
No ban. No wall. Equality for all,
No state visit.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Mayor of London wants state visit by Trump to be cancelled

Today, 09:40

London mayor Sadiq Khan wants the Donald Trump state visit to Britain to be cancelled. He does not want to welcome the American president after his tweets about Khan’s reaction after the London attacks this weekend.

On many points, Trump missed it, Khan said last night to Channel 4 TV. “I think we should not roll out the red carpet for the American president, now that his policies go against everything we stand for.”


Trump tweeted “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!” In doing so, he misrepresented Khan’s words, because he [Khan] had said that extra police would be on the streets, and that Londoners did not have to be alarmed about that. A Khan spokesperson said in response that the mayor has something better to do than respond to Trump‘s tweets.

The US President doubled down in a new tweet. Trump thought it a pathetic excuse by [Labour party] Khan and said the media do their utmost to sell Khan’s explanation of the comment.

Johnson: it will go ahead

The British [Conservative party] Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says in a reply that he has no reason to cancel the visit. …

The state visit has already been postponed. It would take place in July, but an online petition was launched to stop the visit. There were also demonstrations. The petition was signed 1.8 million times, followed by a parliamentary debate. It was decided to let the visit go ahead, but postpone it to October. A final date has not yet been announced.


Khan has received broad support for his actions after Saturday’s attack. …

The British ambassador to the United States has also expressed his support, as well as the United States Conference of Mayors. The most famous US mayor, Bill de Blasio of New York, said on Twitter that he thought Trump‘s comments about Khan to be unacceptable .
