January 20 is Donald Trump’s inauguration day as US President. Millions worldwide are horrified by everything he represents—from his racist plan for a wall with Mexico and mass deportation of immigrants, to his call for a ban on Muslim migrants, his gross sexism, plan to give massive tax cuts to the rich and his threat to derail any global action on climate change. Trump also threatens to create a more dangerous world through an escalation of military spending and confrontation with China.

Trump’s election has already encouraged anti-immigrant and anti-refugee politics in Australia. Pauline Hanson and One Nation celebrated his election. Malcolm Turnbull’s “border control” policies and Peter Dutton’s attack on the Lebanese Muslim community attempt to play on the same xenophobia and scapegoating.

Australia’s close military links with the US mean his policies put us in danger too. Join us as part of protests in the US, across Australia and the world to say no to Trump and what he stands for.
