Liverpool Trump Protest

January 22, 2017

Hundreds turned out in Liverpool to protest on the day of the  inauguration of Donald Trump. In the fading light people gathered on the steps of Lime street station to show there abhorrence towards Trump. On that day the most powerful office on Earth was transfered to someone who promised to build a giant wall along the Mexican border, organise the expulsion of 11 million “illegal” immigrants and introduce “extreme vetting” for Muslims entering the country. Trump has a long history of racist outbursts. He has said ‘laziness is a trait in blacks’, described Mexican immigrants as ‘criminals’ and ‘rapists’, and condoned the beating of a Black Lives Matter activist at one of his rallies. He has also said women should be “punished” for having abortions, and chillingly sought to downplay the severity of sexual violence, dismissing boasts of sexually assaulting women as ‘locker room talk’.

The most powerful elected official in the world will also now be a climate change denier, posing a direct threat to the survival of large swathes of humanity as global temperatures threaten to cause climate chaos. Trump also suggested he would consider appointing Supreme Court judges that would overturn the ruling on same sex marriages. The effects of a Trump presidency is set to be felt all over the world as racism, sexism, homophobia and bigotry is normalised through the voice of one of the most powerful and visible figures in the world, and progress on C02 emissions targets dashed as one of the world’s largest emitters refuses to accept there is a problem. At the Liverpool protest speakers from CND, Trade Unions and community groups outlined what a Trump presidency would mean and why it is vital that the world stands up to Trump from day one.

Kyparissi Greece

January 18, 2017

When I first visited Kyparissi in Greece in 2000 I travelled there from Athens on the ‘flying dolphin’ hovercraft. Sadly that service no longer exists and it is now a formidable task to get there. Hopefully I will visit again one day as it is incredibly beautiful.
