Trump’s Muslim Ban Sparks MASSIVE March in DC
30 January 2017
In response to President Trump’s executive order banning citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for a period of 90 days, tens of thousands of protesters amassed at the White House on Sunday, then, when security barricades and other barriers made it impossible to hold everyone, they marched down Pennsylvania Ave. toward the U.S. Capitol.
Many of the marchers stopped at Trump’s new International Hotel to lift an impolite finger and chant the words, “Shame, shame, shame!” The impromptu rally and march was greeted by police lines at the U.S. Capitol, where people called out Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) for being one of the few Members of Congress to express support for the ban. TYT’s Eric Byler reporting.
Already Trump is super-charging U.S. militarism, gutting diplomacy, and punishing the victims of wars Washington started: here.
FOLLOWING EXECUTIVE ORDER, PROTESTS AND UNCERTAINTY “Late Friday, President Donald Trump issued an executive order forbidding millions of refugees, hundreds of thousands of visitors and 500,000 legal immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States. Over the following 48 hours, massive protests erupted in cities and airports nationwide, courts temporarily blocked major parts of the order, the administration defied the courts and Democrats called for an investigation into the administration’s defiance.” [HuffPost]
THE FALLOUT Meet some of the people already affected by Trump’s executive action. Some extremist groups and ISIS fighters hailed the ban as a victory on social media. … and the ACLU received six times its annual amount of online donations this weekend. Airbnb vowed to offer free housing to immigrants and refugees affected by the ban. [Ben Walsh, HuffPost]
From the organisers of the demonstration against Trump’s policies in The Hague, the Netherlands:
In his first week as United States President, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to ‘keep out radical islamic terrorists’ from Syria, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen and Sudan. This means that from now on people (with passports) from these seven countries are not allowed to enter the USA, even if they have a valid Green Card. Thousands of innocent people are victimized by this xenophobic and dangerous measure. Lets protect our democratic values and stand up against discrimination and exclusion. Come demonstrate at the US Embassy in The Hague (Lange Voorhout ) this Wednesday [1 February] at 4pm! Invite and bring your friends
