STOP TRUMP COALITION – CARNIVAL OF RESISTANCE - Demo 4th June 2019
Donald Trump is visiting the UK from 3rd to 5th June – and RMT is calling on its members to mobilise for a national demonstration on Tuesday 4th June against his politics of racism, war and hate.
The Stop Trump Coalition is a network of grassroots campaigns, unions, NGOs and politicians which came together in February 2017. When Trump visited the UK last year, 250,000 people marched in London and another 150,000 joined protests around the UK.
This year, protesters will be meeting at 11am at Trafalgar Square on Tuesday 4th June, followed by a march to wherever Trump is. More details are available here - https://www.stoptrump.org.uk/
In addition, Wales Together Against Trump has called a demo in Cardiff on Saturday 1st June. Assembling at 12 noon outside City Hall in Cardiff. Details of more local events and transport to London are available here - https://www.stoptrump.org.uk/events/
A coach has also been organised to the London demo, likely departing Pontypridd at 6.15am and Cardiff 6.45am. Email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible for tickets.
When Trump turns up I urge everyone to ensure that he gets a clear message that the people of Britain reject his divisive policies and his racism, sexism and bigotry.
All members and branches are urged to share these details with colleagues, friends and family and encourage as many people as possible to attend.
Thanking you in anticipation.
