Edinburgh :Scotland Against Trump DEMONSTRATION

About this event

Donald Trump has set a course for nothing short than a turn to fascism, and Theresa May is backing it to the hilt. In the last week Trump has brought forward a raft of executive orders that will embolden every white nationalist, and is preparing to embark on massive voter suppression. In a move akin to the Nazis he has pledged to publicly name all immigrants who have committed a crime on a weekly basis. That will open the door to a surge in racist attacks, and he knows it. He has reinstated torture, sent abortion rights back to the stone age and inserted a who's who of the elite in his cabinet and is being directed strategically by white supremacist Steve Bannon. The wall is being built, and the process for banning Muslims entering the US is underway. This is a time to fight back. We will stand up and be counted. Trump is the apex of an insurgency of an international far-right. We will resist. We are the majority. We are ready to make our voice heard. Theresa May is setting herself up as the key Trump ally. She has nothing but praise for his regime, and is even using the NHS as a bargaining chip for a Trump trade deal. She says that together with Trump the U.S. and UK will 'lead the world.' We are calling for a mass mobilisation to assemble the Meadows. We will march, and our route will be released soon. These are not ordinary times. Be on this demonstration and recruit your friends to the resistance.
