Toronto Anti Trump rally: “No to KKK, white supremacy, fascist USA” (video)

On Monday, January 30, 2017 hundreds participated in a rally in front of the American Consulate in Toronto protesting US President Donald Trump’s Executive OrderProtecting the Nation form Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States”.

The order temporarily bars travellers with no valid visa from seven nations (including Syria) that are known of their support of terrorism or serves as major hubs for terrorist groups. Trump instructed the security agencies to formulate during the next few months a new policy to ensure a more effective security screening of terrorists and criminals before entering the US.

The protesters chanted the following slogans:

  • Act now! Trudeau.
  • Donald Trump has got to go.
  • No hate, no fear. Immigrants are welcome here.
  • Build the wall, we’ll tear it down.
  • Muslims’ rights are human rights.
  • No ban. No registry. No white supremacy.
  • No Trump. No KKK. No to fascist USA.

On the protest Facebook page the organizers posted the following:

Donald Trump is passing the most racist Executive Orders the US has seen in decades.

Refugees, many of them children, are trapped in airports and being turned back to a dangerous home.. because of their religion, their language, their skin colour.

Five Muslims were just murdered in Quebec City.

For all those who believe in a compassionate world, the time to act is now.

This is peaceful non-disruptive gathering, open to anyone. We are acting as allies, and not speaking on behalf of anyone, nor claiming to be a voice for this issue.
