"No Ban, No Wall": Protest Trump’s Racist Border Orders.

Donald Trump has made executive orders to implement a 120-day ban on refugees, a 90-day ban on Muslim majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia and an indefinite ban on all Syrian refugees. These bans are designed to terrorise millions in the U.S. and beyond.

But Trump's racist assault is being met with inspiring protests which have erupted across the US, especially outside airports, to overturn the ban on Muslims and refugees and to release those detained.

This protest made a statement that they are against Trump’s Muslim and refugee ban and they do not tolerate racism in any form. They cannot let prejudice and (21st century) fascism define their global future, and the future of the generations to come.

Tuesday's protest did not just stand in solidarity with those targeted in the US. They spoke out against rampant Islamophobia in Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia.

They joined together on Tuesday 7th February at 6:00pm at Aotea Square to make a statement that the people of Aotearoa are against Trump’s Muslim ban and racist immigration policies. They stood in solidarity with the people in the US who are resisting the Muslim and refugee ban and all those affected by Islamophobia worldwide.
