RMT calls on members to mobilise against Trump

STOP TRUMP COALITION - CARNIVAL OF RESISTANCE - Demo 4th June 2019

Dear colleagues,

Donald Trump is visiting the UK from 3rd to 5th June - and RMT is calling on its members to mobilise for a national demonstration on Tuesday 4th June against his politics of racism, war and hate.

The Stop Trump Coalition is a network of grassroots campaigns, unions, NGOs and politicians which came together in February 2017. When Trump visited the UK last year, 250,000 people marched in London and another 150,000 joined protests around the UK.

RMT to join anti-racist demo on 9th December

Far right leader Tommy Robinson is attempting to capitalise on the Government's Brexit crisis by organising a rally on 9th December to promote his far right, fascist agenda.

He is trying to win broader support for a new violent racist street movement, which has already been responsible for racist attacks and attacks on trade unionists, including RMT members.

RMT is supporting the counter demonstration organised by Stand Up to Racism on 9th December.

On the streets against Trump and the far right!

For working-class unity against racism and bigotry

13-14 July: on the streets

against Trump and the far right!

​RMT is supporting the mobilisations protesting the visit of US President Donald Trump on Friday 13 July, and the counter-protest against a planned far-right mobilisation in support of Tommy Robinson on 14 July.

Join us to oppose hate and stand up for unity and solidarity.
