Together Against Trump – Newcastle Protest 3 June 2019

Anya Cook

UCU National Executive

Speaking today for Newcastle Unites

Our anti-racist coalition stands for the people of Newcastle

⁃ be they of left or of right

⁃ Be they of binary or non binary

⁃ Be they of faith or of no faith

⁃ And whatever their immigration status

We are united against all forms of discrimination.

Newcastle Unites wants to build a community for the whole community.

⁃ We value diversity

⁃ We value the beauty in difference

⁃ We value the richness of our community

⁃ We believe in equality

⁃ We believe in our right to live in freedom and safety

⁃ And we believe in our right to live without fear

Donald Trump heralds an agenda that creates division, creates distrust and creates fear. That is why he is not welcome here.

The leader of the free world promotes values that are anything but free.

The leader of the free world says if you can’t get what you want by asking, you grab it and take it anyway.

⁃ Donald Trump teaches hate

⁃ Donald Trump teaches blame

⁃ Donald Trump teaches grudge

⁃ And to hold on to that blame and direct that hate

Donald Trump stands for a meritocracy where it’s ok to hate women, it’s ok to hate immigrants, it’s ok to hate the weak and the less fortunate and it’s ok to blame everybody else.

Well that’s not ok.

Donald Trump is not welcome here.

Say it loud. Say it clear. Donald Trump’s not welcome here.

Say it loud. Say it clear. Donald Trump’s not welcome here.
