Nothing lasts forever, even special military relations. A meeting against the visit of the President of the United States to London will be held with the participation of Chris Williamson, Mark Serwotka and Huda Elmi.
After less than two years of presidency, Donald Trump’s foreign policy has faced huge criticism, with the news outlet Al Jazeera naming him as “the most pro-Israel president ever” to give an example.
Trump has not only recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, he has also obliged Israeli demands to cut funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which supports Palestinian refugees. Most importantly, he has given unconditional support to the massacre in Gaza, yet again going against the protection of Palestinian people’s human rights.
In addition to his position on Palestine, Trump has been a participant in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) crisis, which started last year after his visit to Saudi Arabia. Moreover, the President of the United States has dismantled the United States’ deal with Iran, which was considered as the biggest diplomatic achievement made by the Obama administration.
In response to Donald Trump’s first visit to the United Kingdom, a public meeting has been organised bringing together leading figures of the anti-war movement to explore the political and military friendship between the two countries.
During “No to Trump’s visit” there will be the opportunity to discuss the development of a foreign policy free from racism and sexism as well as shock doctrine strategies and advocates for the defence of social justice both at home and abroad.
The event is hosted by the NLondon Stwc and will take place on the 26 June, from 7–8:45 pm, at the New Unity, 277A, Upper Street, London, N1 2TZ. Tickets are available at Eventbrite. For further information, please visit this link.
