Donald Trump to face 'carnival of resistance' (UK)

Dozens of groups and thousands of individuals will try to make US president’s visit uncomfortable

Source: Guardian

The organisers of anti-Donald Trump protests have promised a “carnival of resistance” that will begin as soon as the US president lands in the UK on Thursday.

While major protests have been prepared for London, the organisers said preparations had taken on “a life of their own” and would be carried out by dozens of groups and thousands of individuals across the country.

Protests will start as Trump arrives from Brussels with pockets of protesters co-ordinating around the country to ensure that while the president may avoid the largest gatherings in the capital, they will not escape his notice.
...
Women’s March London – which brought 100,000 people to the streets of the capital in 2017 – will assemble at 11am outside the BBC offices in Portland Place before leaving at 12.30pm to move along Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus and Whitehall, culminating in a rally at Parliament Square.

For the Bring the Noise rally, organisers are encouraging marchers to take “pots and pans out of the kitchen ... and on to the streets, banging to show our disapproval and claiming our political voice in public space”.

3. He's a coward. He canceled his visit to London

He canceled his visit to London and blamed it on - you guessed it - Obama.

5. I hope it's disruption of lasting, historical proportions.

"Claiming our political voice in public space." Exactly so......
