Protests are planned for London and other UK cities this weekend
Why are Brits protesting?
Thousands of men and women will take to the streets of London, Washington and many other major cities around the world today on the first full day of Mr Trump’s presidency.
In Washington, more than 200,000 men and women are expected to attend a march that will feature musical performances from Beyoncé, Janelle Monáe and more.
Another 14,000 people will attend a march in London with QI host Sandi Toksvig, Labour MP Yvette Cooper and the Green Party’s Caroline Russell scheduled to speak.
Organisers have said: “The US election proved a catalyst for a grassroots movement of women to assert the positive values that the politics of fear denies.
Millions will join marches and protests worldwide
“We will march for the protection of our fundamental rights and for the safeguarding of freedoms threatened by recent political events.
“We unite and stand together for the dignity and equality of all peoples, for the safety and health of our planet and for the strength of our vibrant and diverse communities.”
Emma McNally, protest organiser, added: “Mr Trump has been normalising unacceptable behaviour and has been contributing to social unrest, social anxiety and social fear and we want to make a stand against that.”
Separate protests took place last night in 20 cities across the UK,
