THOUSANDS ON ANTI DONALD TRUMP RALLY BRING MANCHESTER TO A HALT
 

Star date: 30th January 2017

GREATER MANCHESTER SENDS CLEAR MESSAGE - 'HEY HO DONALD TRUMP HAS GOT TO GO!'

Over three thousand people crammed into Albert Square in Manchester tonight to send a clear message of opposition to Donald Trump and Theresa 'The Appeaser' May.

Chanting 'Hey Ho Donald Trump Has Got To Go!' and 'Refugees Are Welcome Here' an impromptu march, with many carrying placards comparing Trump to Hitler, brought Manchester city centre to standstill.

After a tempestuous weekend of demonstrations all over America, tonight Greater Manchester sent its own message to Donald Trump, comparing his anti-Muslim, anti-refugee policies to fascism and Hitler.

Over three thousand people packed into Albert Square, in the shadow of the Town Hall sign reading Welcome To Manchester, to hear speakers condemn the new US President and Theresa May's invitation for him to come to the UK on state visit.

Everyone, it seemed, had made their own placard on the back of cardboard and even pizza boxes, with messages ranging from `Silence Is Complicity' to `Never Again Is Now!'. History teachers carried photos of Hitler, kids carried homemade pictures of Trump in a bin, and Salford and Manchester's music fraternity were out in force with a `Fac off Donald' banner.

Amidst the satirical placards and chants ('You can't build a wall your hands are too small') one huge banner said it all 'Muslims Are Not The Enemy'...

"Israeli citizens are currently banned from entering 16 states including Syria, Iran, Iraq, Yemen and Libya. Mr Trumps executive order temporarily barred travel to the US from all of those countries. The other countries which ban Israeli citizens are Algeria, Bangladesh, Brunei, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Oman, Pakistan, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates."

I find it extremely distasteful when people are being compared to what happened pre and during WW2. It seems to me that there is an all round lack of respect for people from all sides.

Where was u when Obama banned Iraqis for 6 months & the Saudis (who've taken NO refugees in) when they visited. These people would be better placed spending their misspent energy in their own neighborhoods, rather than wasting peoples time & money policing these liberal fools. #libtardlosers Pathetic!!!!!

This was an incredible demonstration of the anger and resentment about the invitation to visit this country to this disgusting man, who trashes all the norms of a civilised society. They were also vocal about the injustice of US bans on immigrants. What surprised and pleased me was the large number of young people at this protest. If we can raise this same fervour from these young people to fight for the NHS we could make a difference. Maybe not so exciting but as important and essential for all our futures. Also so many of our immigrants work in the NHS so fighting for one supports the other.

WHERE IS THE TRIDENT SAFETY REPORT?

In the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire, Salford City Council commissioned a safety report from a company called Trident on all the high rise blocks in Pendleton. Over a year later the report, promised at the time to residents and press, has still not been released.

At last night's scrutiny panel of Salford Council, tenants again asked the question about the Trident report and did not get an adequate response. The Strategic Director for the Environment and Community Safety admitted that he hadn't even read it all!
