The best signs from yesterday’s anti-Trump rally in Newcastle

“You’re only good for memes”

Last night, in cities up and down the country, people took to the streets in an ’emergency protest’ against Donald Trump’s latest executive order, signed on Friday, which inhibits citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for a period of 90 days.

The Trump administration say the order has been designed to allow time to undergo a review of security and border checks in order to protect America and American citizens from potential terror attacks. There will also be a ban on Syrian refugees.

Two thousand people gathered by Monument in Newcastle city centre to rally against the ban and hear speeches from members of the North East branch of Stand Up To Racism, who organised the protest alongside Newcastle Stop the War, the North East People’s Assembly and the Newcastle Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
