On Friday January 27, Donald Trump signed an executive order banning US entry of migrants from seven Muslim-majority countries and suspending all refugee admissions.
This inhumane, racist measure must be opposed in the strongest way possible. We must also condemn Theresa May’s refusal to speak out against this injustice.
However, the Muslim Ban is not happening in isolation, but in the context of anti-migrant and anti-Muslim sentiments and policies across the world. May’s silence is hardly surprising, given that the UK Government has been shamefully letting down refugees and asylum seekers, overseeing countless detentions and deportations, and targeting Muslims through the Prevent agenda.
NCAFC stands with all migrants. Freedom of movement should be a right for all regardless of anyone’s nationality.
NCAFC offers full solidarity with all the workers who've shut down airports, the New York taxi drivers who've stopped driving with all the protests taking place in the US and around the world. We will be joining the demonstration against the Muslim Ban outside Downing Street on Monday January 30, and supporting similar demos across the country.
We must not be silent, join us tomorrow at 6 PM!
