Hundreds of protesters rally in Manchester against Donald Trump state visit

Hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of Manchester yesterday in protest of Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK.

Organised by several groups including the Stand Up To Trump campaign and Stand Up To Racism, the midday protest began at Piccadilly Gardens and continued until the early evening.

The action follows an online petition calling for Trump’s state visit to be cancelled, which has nearly gathered two million signatures.
