We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to remove co-operation with the government over President Donald Trump's state visit to the UK. More details
We call on Westminster City Council to remove co-operation with the government over President Donald Trump’s state visit.
President Trump's politics are racist, misogynistic and nationalistic, and clash with fundamental values of equality, tolerance and inclusion. His travel ban targeting Muslims is deeply divisive, distressing and unacceptable – and it remains unclear how it affects Westminster residents with dual nationality from the seven countries in question.
We believe that Westminster Council should not use its resources – or taxpayers’ money – to facilitate a state visit by a leader with such policies.
Trump’s state visit is likely to include 10 Downing Street, Buckingham Palace and other Westminster landmarks, and would normally be supported by the Council’s special events and transport teams. Withholding such support would make his visit difficult to proceed and send a strong signal to both the UK and US governments about the values that we in Westminster uphold.
Unless the Trump administration reverses its travel ban, Westminster Council should immediately remove cooperation with central government over this state visit.
