There’s Going To Be A Huge Protest Against Trump In London This Saturday

Sound the trumpets. This Saturday, 21st January, 2017, women-led marches will take place across the world, coinciding with the first day of Donald Trump’s Presidency.

Those involved in the march believe that the politics of fear and division have no place in 2017 and they are marching to assert the positive values that the politics of fear denies. This global movement began with the Women’s March on Washington but thousands of people in many cities are expected to march in solidarity worldwide, including London.

The Women’s March on London have said that:

‘We will march, wherever we march, for the protection of our fundamental rights and for the safeguarding of freedoms threatened by recent political events. We unite and stand together for the dignity and equality of all peoples, for the safety and health of our planet and for the strength of our vibrant and diverse communities.’

 

All participants of all genders are welcome to come together on Saturday in the spirit of democracy. Supporters of the march include Amnesty International, Greenpeace, ActionAid UK, Oxfam GB, Women’s Equality Party, The Green Party, Pride London, Solidarity with Refugees and many more.

Many celebrities have expressed their intention of joining one of the 370 sister marches across the world, including Katy Perry, Amy Schumer, Cher, Frankie Boyle, Scarlet Johansson and Ian McKellen.

The Women’s March on London assembles in front of the US Embassy, 24 Grosvenor Square at 12pm and is followed by a rally in Trafalgar Square at 2-3.30pm. You can join the march by registering here.
