A demonstration to protest against Donald Trump’s presidency will take place in Edinburgh tomorrow.
Hundreds are expected to march from the Foot of the Mound to the Scottish Parliament in response to Trump’s order to halt the US refugee programme and to impose a 90-day travel ban for nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
The march will take place from 6pm and organisers say they want to show solidarity with similar protests in America against “racist and xenophobic ban on Muslims announced by Trump.”
The march comes as more than 494,000 people signed an online petition calling for an invitation to Donald Trump to make an official state visit to the UK to be rescinded.
The petition, created by Graham Guest, attracted significant interest just a few hours after it was created today.
Calling for the official state visit to be prevented, it cities ‘Donald Trump’s well documented misogyny and vulgarity’ as a reason to disqualify him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales.
