A SECOND protest against Donald Trump's state visit to the UK will be staged outside Colchester Town Hall this evening.

The rally has been organised by Stand Up To Racism Colchester and will start at 6pm. 

On the event Facebook page, it says: "A tide of hatred for US president Donald Trump has isolated Theresa May in her insistence on bringing the bigot-in-chief to Britain.

"A day of protests is set to take place across Britain on Monday of next week as MPs debate Trump’s planned state visit.

"The date was already marked for campaigning by the One Day Without Us initiative to highlight the importance of migrant workers in the face of racist scapegoating.

"Ake Achi, the Birmingham-based founder of the initiative said: 'The idea is to show the contribution we make. But not only that—it’s to show that there’s a network of people who will support migrant workers’ rights and fight together against what the government is doing'."

"The government this week formally rejected a petition signed by nearly 2 million people against Trump’s visit. MPs will still debate the petition next Monday at 4.30pm.

"A protest has been called by Stand Up To Racism (SUTR), the People’s Assembly and others outside parliament in London from 3pm—and another event is planned from 6pm.

"Many other cities and towns are also holding protests. Lets make sure Colchester is one of them."

The first protest took place in the same spot on January 30, after Donald Trump announced he would be banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US.
