Thousands gather to protest against Trump

Thousands of demonstrators are gathering in Trafalgar Square, London as part of a national movement against Donald Trump during his visit to the UK.

Voicing their opinions against his right-wing politics, the assembled groups are marching to Downing Street down Whitehall and then on to Parliament Square.

Co-ordinated anti-Trump demonstrations have also been taking place in other cities across the country.

The march through London is taking place while Donald Trump is having lunch and holding a press conference with Theresa May at Number 10.

A spokesperson for Stand up to Trump said: “Thousands of protestors will be marching to surround Trump as he joins Theresa May on a visit most believe should never have happened. We will be bringing central London to a standstill. By the time he leaves he will know, and the world will know that people here reject him and his toxic politics.”

A Stop Trump Coalition spokesperson said: “This is a victory for all of the protesters who are joining us on Tuesday to make their voices heard against Trumpism. The Carnival of Resistance will be going on yards from the building where Trump is meeting with members of our chaotic government, disrupting his visit and getting our message across loud and clear – Trump and his politics aren’t welcome in the UK.”

Together Against Trump also called a protest outside Buckingham Palace on the evening of Monday 3 June to coincide with Donald Trump’s banquet with the Queen.
