Protests Against Trump in UK as Lawmakers Debate Canceling State Visit

London, February 21 (RHC)-- Thousands of activists across the UK took part in protests against U.S. President Donald Trump in the country.  Reports from London and other British cities say that activists, lawmakers, and trade unionists rallied on Monday during the protests organized by the Stop Trump coalition.  

The Stop Trump coalition said that the demonstrations were designed to “hold up a mirror to our own society,” which has experienced a spike in hate crimes ever since 52 percent of Britons voted to end the country’s membership in the European Union. 

The protests came just days after the UK government rejected a petition signed by 1.8 million people to scrap Trump’s planned state visit to the country. 

“The planned state visit should clearly be cancelled and the invitation binned.  It’s no wonder that almost 2 million people have signed a petition against the visit, and I’m proud that so many of my constituents have joined that call,” said Caroline Lucas, a Green Party MP who was attending the event.
