Scrap Donald Trump’s state visit to Britain!

Mass organisations from across society formed the Stand Up to Trump Committee in Feb 2017.

Our aims are to campaign locally and nationally to get Theresa May’s invitation to Trump rescinded because of his racist, misogynist and warmongering policies, and his climate-change denial. It aims to build the broadest-possible movement against Trump, and to work with everyone interested in organising a huge public protest should he visit London as the government intends.

We have now called a National Organising Summit, to bulid the movement to campaign against him in London next Saturday (February 18) to rally support for the campaign, and will demonstrate outside Parliament two days later when MPs debate the invitation to Trump.

Speakers at the summit include:

Andrew Murray, Unite the Union
Kevin Courtney, National Unioin of Teachers
Shappi Korsandi, Comedien
Tom Robinson, Musician
Tariq Ali, Author and Journalist
Mohammed Kozbar, Muslim Association of Britain
Lindsey German, Stop the War
Sam Fairbairn, People's Assembly
Sabby Dhalu, Stand up to Racism
Faduma Hassan, Momentum
Ben Jamal, Palestine Solidarity Campaign
Phyllis Opoku-gyimah, Black Pride
Maz Saleem, Anti-Racism Campaigner
Weyman Bennett, Unite Against Fascism
