No Trump in Nottingham

Trump_ban_Nottingham_Facebook.jpgNottingham is a vibrant, creative, caring and multicultural city. Hate, division and prejudice have no place here. Our diversity and openness is something that we not only celebrate – these things make Nottingham a special place. 

Time and again our city has shown that we will not tolerate those who seek to disrupt our communities. We have come together to oppose racists and fascists; we unite to defend our interests and we organise to make our city a better place.

The new President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has been invited to the United Kingdom for a State Visit. This means that no expense will be spared to pamper and promote a man who can fairly be described as a vicious racist. We think the plans for his visit are deeply disturbing. We are not alone. 

Close to two million people have already signed a petition calling for the State Visit to be cancelled. Parliament will discuss the demands of the petition on 20th February. Tower Hamlets and Gateshead Councils have declared themselves a ‘No Trump’ zone. In Nottingham, thousands of people signed the petition and two thousand took to the streets to protest Trump’s racist ban on Muslims entering the USA. 

We want Nottingham to join a growing list of towns and cities in becoming a ‘No Trump Zone’. This means that we want as many people as possible to declare themselves opposed to Trump and the plans for a State Visit. It also means that we ask Nottingham City Council to publicly declare that Donald Trump will never be officially welcomed to our community.

    “Would march until hell freezes over, and when it does, march on the ice.”


    Against Donald Trump’s heavy clouds of racism, islamophopia, anti-refugee hysteria and martial drums…


    The masses of refugees immigrants are the ambassadors of a vibrant world of indomitable willpower of strong solidarity of passion of a life worth living against death.


    They are the lighthouses of beautiful colours and carriers of history and a multitude of cultures. That is why this torrent of people will ignore/demolish any fences and open the borders finding new passages recreating new maps and developing en route a new reality a new world…


    No, the refugee issue is not a matter of national security , it is a matter of humanity, granted of asylum and unconditional solidarity. The cementing of the alliance of the workers and popular strata with the refugees and immigrants is our own homeland our own destination…


    Solidarity above and first of alll.Solidarity without a second thought and without preconditions.Our own road!


    Defend freedom of movement!

    For open borders!

    Against immigration controls and detention centres…


    WORKERS OF ALL COUNTRIES UNITE!


    We have nothing to lose but our chains.. We have a world to win!
