Stand Up To Trump: Protest his visit to Britain! | London, United Kingdom | Saturday, 07. October 2017

PLEASE NOTE: Donald Trump could come to Britain in between his attendance at the G20 summit in Hamburg starting this Friday 7 July and the Bastille Day celebrations in France on Friday 14 July. Get ready to protest if he does! Keep checking this event page for up to date details.

Protest called by Stand Up to Trump

Supporting groups include:
Stand Up to Racism
Stop the War Coalition
People's Assemby Against Austerity
CND

Donald Trump is not welcome here! We will be organising protests to oppose Trump's racism, sexism and bigotry.

The invitation to Donald Trump for a state visit will be opposed by millions in Britain. Our government should not be seen to be endorsing the sorts of ideas and policies he is putting forward. We are committed, along with other campaigning organisations including Stand up to Racism, Stop the War, Peoples Assembly against Austerity and CND , to oppose this visit and to organise mass protests if it takes place.

Join our protest to tell Trump his racism and bigotry isn't welcome in the UK

  • We will be ready to meet Trump with our biggest protests yet! Stand Up To Trump response to news that Trump will visit the UK in early 2018 in a trip downgraded to a 'working visit' amid threats of mass protests. It is being reported today that Donald Trump is expected to arrive in the UK in early 2018 and the visit will be a ‘working visit’, not a “state visit”. In response to this news, campaigners in Britain made it clear we are ready to take to the streets to protest against Trump. Maz Saleem, the spokesperson for Stand Up To Trump UK, said “huge numbers have already said they will publicly protest if Donald Trump came to the UK. Theresa May should be ashamed of herself for allowing this to happen - he should not be given a visit at all." She added "We have seen in Trumps short presidency he is the most reactionary US President ever. Although she may not be around next year looking at the current political climate, we need to continue to challenge the UK's decision to allow Trump into the UK.” She concluded, " Stand up To Trump will stay organised and we will be prepared to organise mass demonstrations against his visit whatever its status. We reject Trump's politics of fear and division." With dozens of MPs and other leading figures expressing their opposition to a Trump visit at any point, and 10,000s of people pledging to protest, it is clear that mass protests will take place if he does come next year.

  • Is anyone there now who can say where it's being held?
  • Where is the event being held on the 14th October?
  • Is there a more specific location?
  • Is this happening?
  • How to I get off this group pls? I will join protest when it happens but in the meantime would rather not have it on my diary
  • If this isn't happening delete the event and start again please
  • So wish I could be there 😞😞
  • Not that I'm not interested, but I'm based in Ireland and wouldn't be able to attend. I don't seem to remove myself from this event. Clicking 'not interested' results in showing me 'going' instead!
  • PLEASE NOTE: There is no protest this Saturday - keep an eye out for a new event if and when it is announced Trump is coming to Britain!
  • Is this event still happening? If so please can you publish some details.
  • Oh no! This clashes with an important family event that will take us all day to travel to :(
  • I originally supported this protest. However, now UK citizens have decided to leave the EU, getting on the wrong side of Trump would be very unwise! We are not 'strong and stable' and can't afford to lose alliances with everyone, particularly the USA!
  • Guess this is off now then is it, as he's not over here?
  • Is this still happening?
  • Is this still happening?
