Trump Visit: Campaigners To Protest 'Nuclear Warmonger of our Age
WASHINGTON - The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament will join a major demonstration against Donald Trump's 'dangerous policies' on Friday as the US President visits Britain.
CND is part of a coalition of campaigns supporting the Together Against Trump demonstration at which tens of thousands of people are expected.
Protesters will hold placards carrying the slogans 'No Nuclear War' and 'Stop Trump's Nuclear Arms Race'.
Kate Hudson, CND General Secretary, said:
"Trump is the President who's torn up the Iran nuclear deal, he's threatened to kill millions with nuclear weapons in North Korea, and he's unveiled new 'usable' nukes, increasing the possibility of nuclear war.
"When he dropped the 'mother of all bombs' on Afghanistan it signaled that he won't stop with threats. We have to recognise that a nuclear bomb could be next.
"His visit to Britain comes after an appearance at the NATO summit in Brussels where he is calling on member states to spend even more money on nuclear weapons and war.
"It's crucial that Trump's visit is defined not by Theresa May's open arms, but by opposition to his dangerous policies. That's why thousands of us will take to the streets in central London on Friday to make that message loud and clear."
