Coventry protests as Parliament debates Trump state visit
Coventry once again joined nationwide protests against the proposed state visit of Donald Trump, organised to coincide with the parliamentary debate which was prompted by close to 2 million people signing a petition against the state visit. The protest was called by Coventry Stand Up To Trump.
Dozens of people joined the protest, with many more hearing the anti-Trump message as they left work in the city centre. Speakers from Coventry TUC, Coventry Against Racism and others talked about Trump’s divisive agenda and why it must be stopped.
Socialist speakers pointed out how Trump is a symptom of a sick capitalist system, and through his actions he is actually uniting more people together as they join up to oppose him.
The Socialist Party will look forward to continuing the protests against his state visit and putting forward a socialist alternative to Trump and his system.
