Brixton Moves Against Trump - community feeder march to the Lobby of Parliament - 20th February 4.30pm
Black Activists Rising Against Cuts (BARAC) UK has organised a feeder march from Kennington Park to Parliament on 20th February, where we will join the main lobby of Parliament to demonstrate our complete opposition to Trump being granted a State visit to the UK.
We will be assembling in Kennington Park at 4.30pm with speeches from grassroots community campaigns, departing at 5.30pm and marching to Parliament. We have called this march to bring together Black (BME) and migrant communities and grassroots orgs campaigning against racism and xenophobia, to oppose Trump and to mark an One Day Without Us.
1 Day Without Us is a National Day of Action on 20th Feb 2017 to celebrate the contribution of migrants to the UK, to coincide with UN World Day of Social Justice.For 24 hours, we are inviting migrants from inside and outside the European Union, and everyone who supports them, to celebrate the contribution that migrants make.
We will have a sound system leading the march and we are grateful to Lush for sponsoring this.
We invite you to join us. Please bring your home made placards, vuvuzelas and whistles to make some noise.
