US Embassy first protest - No to Trump's racism

US Embassy, Nine Elms, London. Sat 20 Jan 2018




 The new US Embassy in Nine Elms opened for business earlier this week

 This was the first protest there. At right is a wall built by the protesters

 Behind the wall is the US Embassy

 Paula Peters of Disabled People Against the Cuts (DPAC) speaks

 The rain was falling steadily as she spoke

 Trump has made many racist and Islamophobic statements

 Today was the first anniversary of his inauguration

 'Who's in a 'HOLE?' and a rather too graphic illustration

 

 

 The embassy is a dramatic building, a large cube with a screen on three sides

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 It was time to knock the wall down - but another photographer moved in front of me as people began to push it down

 It needed rather better choreography and for media to be organised and not rush in front of others

 for us all to get the best pictures.
 

 

 The wall was rather less impressive once it was pushed down

 

 

 

 

 
     
 

 The is a large foot more or less opposite the embassy
