Thank you for being at the manifestaton!

A lot of people were present in the streets of Brussels, saterday the 7th of july, to tell Trump and his European imitators that we won't accept their logic of a military build up, which takes away scarce recourses from measures for poverty reduction, social protection, combatting climate change, a humane refugee-policy and a society of solidarity and diversity in general. Thank you for being there!

Protest March
Make Peace Great Again

7 july 3 PM - Brussels North Station

Trump will visit our country on 11 and 12 July for a NATO summit. On the agenda: more defence expenditure by all NATO countries, including Belgium. The Trump Not Welcome Platform calls on everyone to reclaim the streets on Saturday 7 July. We refuse to participate in this arms race at the expense of poverty reduction, social protection, the fight against climate change, humane refugee policies, and a diverse society based on solidarity. Will you join us?

Come to Brussels on Saturday 7 July, and say ‘No’ together with us to Trump, his politics, and that of his European counterparts. Let us jointly give a message:

For peace

Against the purchase of new fighter jets and the militarisation that Trump and the NATO want to enforce. We want to invest our tax money in education, health care, the climate, and international solidarity! For a world without nuclear weapons!

 

for a liveable world

It’s outrageous: brown coal plants are reopened, and iodine tablets are distributed to protect us against the cracks in the nuclear power plants. We want a solidarity-based and decisive climate policy for a sustainable future.

For a tolerant society based on solidarity

Racism, sexism, homo and transgenderphobia, intimidation, criminalisation of those who seek refuge from war and of people who open up their houses out of solidarity … Rights for which the struggle started long ago are under attack. We stand up for the rights of all people, based on the principles of equality and solidarity.

For social rights

For the interests of the 99%. No to the politics of self-enrichment of governments that are governed by and for the richest 1%. We’re fed up with austerity measures. Time to invest in our society.

Does your organisation want to sign this call? Contact us via trumpnotwelcome.be@gmail.com

Join us on Saturday 7 July and let your voice be heard. Let us show that we stand united for a peaceful and sustainable future based on solidarity. United we stand!
