Highlights of Stand Up to Trump Protests 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.

Activists want US president’s visit cancelled not postponed
CAMPAIGNERS are calling for US President Donald Trump’s visit to Britain to be cancelled following reports yesterday that it may only be postponed.
The White House denied that the fear of widespread protest had forced Mr Trump to run scared and tell Theresa May that he did not want to go ahead with his state visit.
Anti-racist and anti-war campaigners said that the Tories’ lack of an overall win in the general election was proof that Mr Trump was not welcome in Britain.
Stand Up to Racism co-convener Sabby Dhalu said: “Theresa May quite rightly paid a price at the general election for, among other things, rolling out the red carpet for Trump.
“The British people have spoken: Trump and his hatred are not welcome here.”
After the terror attack on London Bridge earlier this month Mr Trump posted a series of hateful posts, including criticism of Muslim London Mayor Sadiq Khan for offering assurances to the British public.
Mr Trump stormed: “Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his ‘no reason to be alarmed’ statement.”
Stop the War coalition convener Lindsey German called for an end to the “special relationship” between Britain and the US, condemning it for causing “so much war and misery”.
And Stand Up to Trump’s Maz Saleem said: “Jeremy Corbyn warned Theresa May about the outcome if she invited Trump. He spoke for millions when he said Trump was not welcome.
“There is another superpower in the world: it is made up of Muslim, Christian, Jew, black and white, LGBT and straight people, men and women, young and old.
“We are the majority and reject the politics of hate and division. Our message is of unity and hope.”
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also called for the visit to be pulled, citing Mr Trump’s attack on Mr Khan and his withdrawal from the Paris climate deal as reasons.
The invitation to visit had been given on behalf of the Queen by a fawning Ms May when she rushed to meet Mr Trump in Washington in January, days after his inauguration.
Downing Street refused to comment, saying only that the invitation remained unchanged.
