A 'CARNIVAL of Oxford resistance' will greet the American President's arrival in Britain next week.

President Donald Trump’s three-day state visit does not take in Oxfordshire, but a coalition of Oxford-based anti-racist campaigners, trade unions, community leaders and members of the public– calling themselves Oxford Together Against Trump (OxTAT) – will demonstrate in the city regardless.

OxTAT will lead two days of protests to 'show the US president that Oxford residents reject him and his racist, homophobic, misogynistic and climate change-denying views'.

Mr Trump is expected to meet the Queen, visit Portsmouth for D-Day commemorations and hold talks with the prime minister during his trip, from Monday to Wednesday.

It will be the second time in as many years that the controversial leader has come to Britain, following his visit in July 2018, which included dinner at Blenheim Palace.

Oxford Mail:

This time, there will be two Oxford protests, on Monday and Tuesday, at 5pm in Carfax, while a coach will take protestors to London at 10am for the national demonstration on Tuesday.

Julie Simmons, from Oxford Stand Up To Racism, said: "Trump's repeated racist statements have helped to legitimise racist ideas on a global scale, making it easier for the far right and fascism to grow on a scale we haven't seen since the 1930s.

"This is a threat to everyone who wishes to live in a tolerant and democratic society. Trump's visit is an opportunity for hundreds of thousands of people to voice their opposition to the growth of racism and fascism and Trump's role in this growth."

Last year, Mr Trump’s visit to Blenheim Palace was met with a huge protest, as he dined with the prime minister and various other dignitaries.

Oxford Mail:

Rabyah Khan, from the Oxford and District Labour Party, added: “As someone who reneges his responsibility as a public leader by stoking hostility towards minorities and women, Trump is not welcome here.

"As with his visit to Blenheim Palace last year, Oxford and District Labour Party will stand against his racism, misogyny, homophobia and scapegoating of vulnerable people. The more people who join us in Oxford and London in solidarity with the victims of his vitriol, the stronger we will stand united.”
