Oh my word. This protest is absolutely huge. On a week day as well. Wow. #TrumpProtests
The protest is so big we have to start marching to Trafalgar Square 40 minutes earlier than planned.

We have already drastically exceeded our expectations. #TrumpProtests
Live at the mass demo in central London #TrumpProtests
Is the biggest weekday protest in British history? #TrumpProtest
The protest has entered Trafalgar Square and the back stretches to Marylebone, a mile and a half away #TrumpProtest
I thought tens of thousands would turn up to protest against Trump on a week day.

250,000 people have so far marched. Incredible. #TrumpProtest
We organised a bigger protest in Britain against @realDonaldTrump and everything he stands for than turned up to his own inauguration in the United States 🤣🤣🤣
The team who made this incredible protest happen are some of the most amazing activists and leaders I’ve ever met.

So proud to be a part of @UKStopTrump. ✊️ #TrumpProtest

Almost everywhere that @PeoplesMomentum held #Unseat campaign events, Labour made gains - some big - and the Tories lost seats. That's down to Momentum and non-Momentum Labour activists. Campaigning works.

Please share this thread far and wide.
In Trafford (where @PeoplesMomentum ran a mass campaign day), the Tories lost overall control of the council for the first time since 2004, despite only a third of seats being up for grabs. Labour's vote share was 47.3% (up 9.1 points), the Tories 36.8% (down 2 points).
In Portsmouth (where @PeoplesMomentum ran a mass canvass), Labour won 4 new seats (with only a third of seats up for grabs), and its share of the vote went up 12 points.

Anti-Semitism on the left not only exists, but there’s a wider group of people who are in total denial about it and dismiss any suggestion it’s there as a smear campaign.

This is completely out of order and has to be confronted and defeated.
Yes, right wing elements will always hijack, weaponise and manipulate any issue. That doesn’t mean the issue doesn’t exist.

If I start randomly punching people, right wing elements would use that against the left. That doesn’t mean I’m not randomly punching people!
You can both condemn and oppose anti-Semitism, and oppose Israel’s brutal and illegal occupation. And - and here’s a critical point - you can have a conversation about each without bringing in the other.
