Hundreds of protesters gathered outside St George’s Hall in Liverpool city centre to “protest against Trump’s Muslim ban”. The protest was organised by Liverpool Momentum and drew in huge crowds protesting against The President’s controversial executive order banning all Syrian refugees from entering and preventing all nationals from seven ‘Muslim majority’ countries from entering the USA: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
Across the UK, protests have been held to show opposition to Trump’s latest executive order and join mounting pressure for Theresa May to condemn the order. The petition calling for Donald Trump’s impending State Visit to be cancelled has surpassed 1 million signatures and continues to grow. The crowd chanted slogans condemning both Trump and May for their actions.
Other cities joining the protests include London, Edinburgh, Manchester and Birmingham, with over 30 cities holding some form of protest with varying numbers in attendance. MPs are now having an emergency debate to discuss the matter of Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’.
