Activists The World Over Protest Against Trump’s Vile Treatment Of Asylum Seekers


Donald Trump has been known to draw huge crowds together…crowds rallying against him that is. We’ve seen protests against his election, worldwide women’s marches against his misogyny, protests against his travel ban,  against his ignorant views on science, and his decision to open the Dakota oil pipeline. His backwards, cruel, nationalistic policies have caused an uproar around the globe, and today people the world over are again protesting him.

Thousands of people were expected to turn out for a rally in Washington, D.C., and more than 700 “Families Belong Together” sister marches are happening in all 50 states on Saturday some even started last night. A whole bunch of other marches are going on in at least four other countries as well.

The Democratic Party for Americans Living Abroad, organized the marches in other countries. They’re intended to urge the Trump administration to reunite the families he ripped apart with his bigoted, cruel, zero tolerance policy the last couple of months. Although public pressure made him sign an Executive Order to stop his ignorant policy, there are still thousands of kids being kept from their families. Trump must be delighted in the cruelty of that, or else he would have fixed it by now.

Trump has, yet again, given this country a huge black eye for the rest of the world to see. Not only are the majority of our citizens outraged by Trump and his hateful policies, but apparently so is the rest of the world. It’s up to us to show the world that we wholeheartedly disagree with everything Trump stands for. His misogyny, racism, homophobia, bigotry, anti-intellectualism, anti-science and outright hate have no place in a civilized world.

One would think that all the marches and protests against him would teach him a thing or two, but one would be wrong in thinking that. Trump only cares about looking like a heartless, brutal, authoritarian dictator, just like all the dictators he constantly praises. But the good people of the world, will band together and protest loudly against everything Trump stands for. We will fight his hate and ignorance every step of the way.
