NHS nurses and doctors will lead the march against Donald Trump's visit to Britain on Tuesday 3 December, as concerns about the threat to the NHS from a trade deal with Trump’s USA intensify. In the wake of last week’s leaked papers from US-UK trade talks, thousands of campaigners will brave the cold to protest outside the Buckingham Palace banquet where Trump will dine tomorrow evening. Crowds will be addressed by doctors, climate change campaigners, anti-war activists and musician Brian Eno.
 

NHS nurses and doctors will lead the march against Donald Trump's visit to Britain on Tuesday 3 December, the Stop Trump Coalition has announced.

The health workers' bloc will tell Trump "hands off our NHS", as concerns intensify about a trade deal letting US firms muscle in on the health service.

The demonstration will assemble at Trafalgar Sq from 4pm onwards, then march down the Mall to arrive at Canada Gate, opposite Buckingham Palace, at 5.45pm. This is shortly before Trump is due to arrive at the palace for a banquet with the Queen.

Trade campaigners have welcomed the release of leaked papers detailing trade talks between the Trump administration and British government officials, which show the US government pushing Britain into as hard a Brexit as possible because they see this as the best way of benefitting the US economy. This comes at the expense of standards, protections and livelihoods in Britain.
