Protest In Birmingham - Lets end the Muslim Ban!
As you already know, The recently elected president of the United States Donald Trump has issued a blanket ban on immigration to the United States from Muslim majority countries. Over a million UK residents have signed a petition (both on-line and in person) which states that until the ban is lifted Theresa May should postpone her invitation to allow Donald Trump to visit our country. This was supported by protests across the country, where thousands of people took to the streets to demand that their council members and MP's consider this plan. I was one of them. I hastily wrote up a sign with black marker pen on the back of a Nike shoebox with the message
"When things seem the most hopeless and dark, we're being tested to see if we will give up on the world and each other, Be strong - Andrew W.K"
This Saturday once again thousands will march on downing street, and those who cannot can join another protest in Birmingham by Waterstones. You can write to your MP, and at the very least sign the many petitions yourself. We must draw the line here, remember our past and say Never Again.
Tell the President we ain't forgot, Tell the Prime Minister we still remember.
