TRUMP PROTEST 4th June 2019

Apr 2019

Dear Roy,

Protests will take place on the day of Trump’s state visit engagements – and we hope to flood the capital with hundreds of thousands of protesters.

When Donald Trump visited the UK for a working visit last year, an estimated 250,000 people took to the streets to oppose him. The People’s Assembly are proud, once again, to help organise and mobilise for Trump’s State Visit on 3-5 June.

We are calling on all our supporters to gather on 4 June from 11am in Trafalgar Square

Activists plan to ‘follow Trump’ by marching from Trafalgar Square to nearby locations depending on the details of Trump’s itinerary for the day.

Themed areas will feature throughout the protest with climate justice, migrants’ rights, racism and misogyny among them. So get your homemade placards at the ready!

A new poll shows a million Londoners are in favour of the Trump protests and half of London residents oppose Trump’s visit.

So, let’s make sure we give him a proper unwelcome!

How you can help build the demonstration:

Download and print the leaflet, hand them out in your local area, workplace, local cafes, shops and bars. Share the Facebook event and invite your friends to attend. Keep checking the Together Against Trump for updates on itinerary and transport and share the information.

Can you help?

The People’s Assembly is a grassroots organisation which is supported by many trade unions, campaigns and local networks, as well as many individuals.  But we need your help. It costs money to organise events, meetings, demonstrations and campaigns. Unlike those who are enforcing austerity, we do not have wealthy businessmen backers. We rely on donations from our supporters. Over the past few months we have organised or supported campaigns over the NHS, closure of libraries, housing and in support of trade union rights. We held a demonstration in early January calling for a general election.

We need to step up our campaigning and help give a voice to those trying to stop library closures, end Universal Credit, defend the NHS and provide a better future for our children.

Please consider supporting The People’s Assembly with a one off or monthly donation.

Thank you!!
