North East says a resounding NO to Trump's "politics of hate"

Hundreds turned out at the Trump International Golf Course at Menie, Balmedie on Saturday 14th July to tell Donald Trump that his rasist, sexist and inhumane policies are not welcome in Scotland and the UK.

This protest, organised by ATUC and a range of supporting organisations, was part of a "carnival of resistance" to Trump which saw hundreds of thousands of people across the UK turn out to condemn his policies and his politics.

In the sunshine, the protest was good natured and upbeat, as protesters brought placards with hard-hitting if often amusing messages slamming Trump's attitudes and behaviours since he became president.

At the end of the day Donald Trump didn't show his face in the North East of Scotland. However the press coverage meant that he could not have failed to get the clear message that the people of the North East and the UK as a whole, oppose his politics of hate.
