Salisbury group carries out protest concerning President Trump’s policies
Members of the Salisbury group gathered in the vicinity of the Guildhall in Salisbury to conduct a protest against President Trump’s human rights policies. The president is visiting the UK at present en route to Helsinki to meet president Putin of Russia. He has been shepherded around carefully by the government to steer him away from the many protestors who are out in force.
Our protest is connected with his activities concerning human rights in particular, his government’s treatment of Mexican children separated from their parents and placed in cages, his statements about refugees and the decision to take the USA out of the Human Rights Council.
Unfortunately, this is not the sort of event the local media want to cover so people were unaware of what we were doing. However, we were pleased at the number of Americans who stopped and expressed support. UPDATE: 19 July. A brief report and photo sent to the Salisbury Journal was not published by the paper.
