Theresa May greeted by protesters on visit to Cardiff
The Prime Minister visited City Hall for Brexit talks
Prime Minister Theresa May was greeted by protesters as she left talks at Cardiff’s City Hall this afternoon.
May had been meeting with First Ministers to discuss a Brexit strategy.
Also in attendance were Nicola Sturgeon, Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones, and Northern Ireland’s Michelle O’Neill.
Upon leaving, boos were heard as well as shouts of “traitor” and “No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA.”
Daniel Carroll, a fresher studying Ancient History, disagreed with the protest and commended May on her “diplomatic and reasoned approach towards the United States.”
The Prime Minister’s visit to the Welsh capital comes ahead of a larger planned protest on Queen Street this evening.
She has recently come under fire following a reluctance to condemn Donald Trump’s controversial executive order on immigration.
A petition calling for Trump’s planned state visit to be downgraded to a diplomatic trip has so far gathered over 1.3 million signatures.
