Do we really need to list the life and crimes of Donald Trump Ė on climate change, women, gays, refugees, economy, international relations etc etc? The US President is a bad joke.
While Melania Trump sashays around in a jacket reading 'I Really Don't Care, Do U?' the UK is getting ready to give the couple an emphatic answer. When the Trumps visit London on Friday 13th July, there are going to be demonstrations in London and around the UK...
At 5pm on the 13th, there's going to be a huge rally in Trafalgar Square, and Greater Manchester CND has booked a return coach from central Manchester to the demo*.
Meanwhile at the same time, Stand Up To Trump Manchester has organised a rally in Albert Square, Manchester...
"Speakers at the rally will highlight the struggle against Trump's bigoted policies - from fighting racism, war and sexism...to the battle against runaway climate change, in solidarity with Palestine and migrants. Bring your stalls, banners and anger against Trump" the organisers state.
"We want to make sure that Manchester, like every other town and city, has a huge protest against Trump" they add "Please come to this event, share with your friends, invite everyone you know and bring your banners, flags and placards."
When Donald Trump was first elected, thousands of people in Manchester spontaneously took the streets during two huge demonstrations... Stand Up To Trump Manchester is expecting a similar, or bigger, turnout to show the US President that he's seriously not welcome here...
