President Trump protest in Cardigan

LAST night (Feb 20) a large crowd gathered on Cardigan Bridge for a protest about US President Donald Trump’s planned state visit to the UK.

The protest ran alongside a Westminster Parliament debate about a petition signed by over 1.8million people in opposition to the visit.

As politicians talked in London, concerned local residents spontaneously held a vigil on Cardigan Bridge.

One protestor said: “Some people in the Tory heartlands of England might welcome Trump, but we don’t want him here in Ceredigion, or anywhere else in Wales.”

Similar protests and vigils took place all over Wales, from St. David’s through Aberystwyth to Bangor, and from Wrexham to Cardiff and Newport.
