We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin, but we all belong to one human race. We all share the same basic values.
Surfing the web the other day I came across an article about JK Rawling the author of Harry Potter. It seems that all of us have a strong opinion about Trump and do not hesitate to express it as did JK Rawling even if doing so means upsetting her fans.
J.K. Rowling’s Twitter feud with Trump supporters is so bad she’s now fighting some of her fans
As a UK citizen you can be told it is not your concern, but this is most certainly not true of course, Trump’s actions as president of the US affect us all worldwide. But even if his actions affected only residents of the US it is still the business of everyone as we all share the same humanity. It should be everyone’s concern regarding the afflictions that befall other people regardless of their race, location, politics or any of the other divisions we use to segregate one another.
As J.K. Rawlings rightly says “When a man this ignorant & easy to manipulate gets within sniffing distance of the nuclear codes, it’s everyone’s business.”
The world is in turmoil there is no doubt about that, in the US a man unsuitable for the position of president now for all intents and purposes is the most powerful man in the world. Though I have to say frankly that China most likely does not see it that way.
From time to time I will publish a selection of actions you can take in protest to Donald Trump and his administration.
Below are actions worldwide, and in the UK in opposition to Trump. Please take as many of the actions below as you can, there is something suitable for everyone. Every signature on every petition is a form of protest. Not all of us can attend marches but if you can please do so, we should not allow the momentum to subside, we must not become complacent, our very lives, the lives of future generations, other species and the earth itself may depend on what action we take now .
PLEDGE TO MARCH AGAINST TRUMP’S VISIT TO BRITAIN
“Donald Trump’s presidency is turning out to be every bit as dangerous and divisive as we feared. The rhetoric of his campaign, and his early executive orders, have sparked a wave of fear and hatred. Those who are often already marginalised and discriminated against – particularly Muslims – have been particular targets for Trump.
Read More and make the pledge to attend a mass march against Trump to “oppose this state visit to the UK and commit ourselves to one of the biggest demonstrations in British history, to make very clear to our government, and to the world, this is not in our name.”
Petitions – Please sign and share the following 3 petitions
1) Tell the EPA: Attacking Clean Air Standards is the Wrong Move
“President Trump has taken direct aim at one of our most critical public health and climate protections: Clean Car Standards. This EPA initiative takes aim at the greenhouse gas pollution from America’s tailpipes—emissions responsible for about one-third of our total climate pollution.”
Don’t let this administration unravel the crucial progress we’ve made. Tell EPA Administrator Pruitt: Hands off the Clean Car Standards—and all climate pollution limits.”

Trumps health care plans will hit the poor the hardest. Surprise Surprise who would have guess it. America your president is not working for you – unless you are rich that is!
“Donald Trump has blithely said he knows his healthcare plan will hurt poorer Americans the worst.
The president said “yeah” as he nodded along during a Fox News interview on Thursday as host Tucker Carlson noted problems with the plan he is mooting to introduce, replacing Obamacare. The less well-off were most likely to vote for him.
During Wednesday’s interview, Carlson said: “A Bloomberg analysis shows that counties that voted for you, middle class and working class counties, would do far less well under this bill than counties that voted for Hillary.”
Trump said: “Oh, I know. I know.”

Please sign the Pledge
Stop Hate Dump Trump
Please speak out, show your solidarity by signing the following pledge
We believe Trump is a grave threat to democracy, freedom, human rights, equality, and the welfare of our country and all our people.
We have witnessed Trump inciting hatred against Muslims, immigrants, women, the disabled. We have seen him evidencing dangerous tendencies that threaten the bedrock of democracy: unleashing a lynch mob mentality against protestors, calling for the expulsion of Muslims from the country, bullying, and fear-mongering.
History has shown us what happens when people refuse to stand against hate-filled leaders.
We pledge ourselves to speak out in every way possible against the politics of hate and exclusion he represents.
