Protests Planned As Donald Trump Visits the Queen During NATO Summit


Plans have been laid to protest the visit of Donald Trump to London in early December when he attends the 2019 NATO Summit.

On Tuesday 3rd December, the Queen will be hosting a reception for NATO leaders at Buckingham Palace and protestors from a wide range of campaigning organisations will be there to greet the delegation. Crowds will be assembling in Central London from 5pm where there will be speeches and music before setting off towards Buckingham Palace.  

Lindsey German, Stop the War Coalition Convenor, said: "Trump will be coming here the week before an election and will endorse Johnson. We need an alternative to war, militarism and racism - an anti-war government and a mass demonstration against Trump and NATO."

Kate Hudson, General Secretary of CND, said: "NATO is a hugely dangerous and destructive nuclear-armed alliance with the capacity to destroy all forms of life many times over. This is no time to celebrate and welcome it to London. It’s time to put an end to NATO, and build the peaceful, just world that we want to see."


Stop the War was founded in September 2001 in the weeks following 9/11, when George W. Bush announced the "war on terror". Stop the War has since been dedicated to preventing and ending the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere. Stop the War opposes the British establishment’s disastrous addiction to war and its squandering of public resources on militarism. We have initiated many campaigns around these issues.
