Amnesty issues rallying call to join protests across UK opposing Trump's so-called Muslim Ban
Amnesty International UK tonight pledged its full support to rallies happening across the UK tomorrow (30 January) opposing Donald Trump’s travel ban.
Kate Allen, Director of Amnesty UK, said:
“The move to impose a ban on refugees and nationals of seven predominantly Muslim countries including Syria, Sudan and Somalia from entering the US is appalling.
“Donald Trump’s administration is wilfully demonising as ‘security concerns’, children, women and men fleeing from torturers and mass murderers.
“These demonstrations show the depth of anger and frustration felt by ordinary people in the UK.
“Amnesty is calling on everyone to search out their nearest demonstration and send a loud message to our politicians that such a ban cannot be tolerated.”
Kate Allen will be attending the demonstration outside Downing Street at 6pm.
