20 January | Bristol | No to Trump: Protest His Inauguration
On 20 January, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as President of the USA.
As well as calling on a blanket ban on Muslims entering the US, Trump has a long history of racist outbursts. He has said 'laziness is a trait in blacks', described Mexican immigrants as 'criminals' and 'rapists', and condoned the beating of a Black Lives Matter activist at one of his rallies.
He has also said women should be "punished" for having abortions, and chillingly sought to downplay the severity of sexual violence, dismissing boasts of sexually assaulting women as 'locker room talk'.
The effects of a Trump presidency is set to be felt all over the world as racism and sexism is normalised through the voice of one of the most powerful and visible figures in the world.
Activists in the US have called protests for the day of his inauguration - we stand in solidarity with them and will be protesting in Bristol, 17:30pm at the Fountains. Come and join us!
