Thousands turn out to protest Trump's state visit

The Campaign against Climate Change has joined tens of thousands on Tuesday 4th June to protest against Donald Trump's state visit to the UK. We marched alongside youth strikers, allies from Friends of the Earth and many more. The message was clear - Trump's policy of withdrawal from the Paris climate deal, his fossil fuel cronyism and his attempts to dismantle all US climate action are not just unacceptable but criminal. We stand with those who resist.

Theresa May’s decision to press ahead with a visit from US President Donald Trump ignored the views of millions of British people who believe racism, Islamophobia, antisemitism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, war-mongering, climate change denial, attacks on human rights and policies that will deepen poverty and inequality should not be celebrated by our government.
