Nottingham People's Assembly posted about No Trump in Nottingham on Facebook 2017-02-04 17:05:56 +0000Sign the petition: No Trump in Nottingham417 signatures
Nottingham 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.
