Together Against Trump protests, Manchester and London
Just over a year after announcing US withdrawal from the Paris climate deal, Donald Trump will visit the UK for the first time. On Friday 13th July, there will be mass protests across the country against Trump and all he stands for.
If you can make it to London, you’re invited to join the climate bloc to make it clear that Trump’s attempts to wreck not just US but global climate action are a crime against all of us. Stand with the poorest in the front line of climate change, including indigenous communities defending their land and water from fossil fuels, and scientists whose vital research is under attack. There’s a coach departing Manchester at 7.30am (details below) and the climate bloc will assemble at 2pm at outside BBC Portland Place, W1A 1AA.
When: Coach to London departs 7.30am, London demo starts 2pm, Manchester demo starts 5pm, Friday 13th July. Coach tickets: Global Justice Now
Where: London demo: Assemble outside BBC Portland Place, W1A 1AA; Manchester demo: Albert Square.
There will be a solidarity demo from 5pm in Albert Square. 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 – and DJ Dave Haslam will be performing a set. Please come to this event, share with your friends, invite everyone you know and bring your banners.
