Donald Trump will soon visit Britain – and Scottish Labour is helping to lead the protests.
Trump’s Presidency stands against everything we, as Labour, believe in. The horrific scenes at the Mexican border in recent days are a rejection of decent human values.
Caging children like animals is barbaric. We cannot roll out the red carpet for a US President that treats human beings this way.
It does not stop there. From his disgraceful equating of anti-fascist campaigners with Nazis in Charlottesville, his withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, to his Islamophobic travel ban and his misogyny Donald Trump has provided endless reasons for being denied any kind of welcome.
Scotland can work for peace and co-operation in the world, a clear alternative to Trump’s politics. There is continued speculation that Donald Trump may visit Scotland during his time in the UK. We must make sure that Scotland’s voice against Trump is heard.
We will march from the Scottish Parliament to the US Consulate and finishing in the Meadows.
Bring your banners and make sure everyone hears us when Scottish Labour says dump Trump.
