On Monday 20 February MPs will discuss the petition against Donald Trump’s state visit to Britain.

It has been signed by nearly 2 million people. This week the government formally rejected the petition, but the debate will still take place—and mass protests can turn the heat on Trump and Theresa May. Join these demonstrations in your area to say Trump isn't welcome here.
