Emergency Protest Tomorrow Protest Trump’s racist Britain First tweets – No state visit!

US Embassy, Grosvenor Square, W1A 2LQ

Stand Up To Racism has called a protests against Donald Trump’s re-tweets of the fascist Britain First’s Islamophobic tweets that have shocked the world and his subsequent defence of them which attempted to justify anti-Muslim hate.

Trump’s presidency has been marked by a series of disgusting racist outbursts from his “Muslim ban” to his equating fascists and anti-fascists at Charlottesville, despite the death of Heather Heyer.

Only this week Trump was making offensive comments while speaking to Native American veterans. Now he has offered support for the views of a group made infamous by the use of their name by murderer of Labour MP Jo Cox.

Britain First are a fascist organisation with a history of Islamophobia and hate crime. Thomas Mair, who murdered Jo Cox, shouted ‘Britain First’ before he commited the terrible act. By retweeting Britain First, trump is legitimising this racism and Islamophobia. We can not let this go unopposed

Join us outside the US Embassy to say no to Trump, no to racism, no to a state visit!
