Fed up with racism, nationalism, inequality and war mongering? Trump is an inspiration to all the vicious far right movements and politicians across Europe and beyond. While decent people weep at children in cages seperated from their parents, people like Trump encourage the politics of fear and hate.
Trump is visiting the UK on 13th July.
Let’s mobilise and organise across Lambeth and Wandsworth boroughs and build for the big protest!
Build bridges not walls!

Our wages have fallen behind as prices and the cost of living increase.
In real terms we have lost 14% of our salary since 2010.
Now there is a campaign to break the public sector pay cap. UNISON and other public sector unions have put in a 5% pay claim.
But we all need to get behind this campaign to win it.
What you can do to help.
Please sign this Parliamentary petition to get it debated in Parliament. We need 100,000 signatures (currently on 73,000!) https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/200032
