FEATURING AISHA DODWELL – You may not have heard about it but Americans are not the only ones protesting Donald Trump and his xenophobic policies. Earlier this week thousands of people in London and other UK cities held mass protests against Trump, specifically over a state visit that he has been invited for.

Activists projected the words “Say No to Trump” on the side of the Parliament in London, as MPs were debating the topic. Nearly 2 million people signed a petition calling on their government to rescind the invitation because, “well documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales.”
