US Embassy protest says NO to Trump
Nine Elms, London. Mon 9th Jul 2018
'Wandsworth Welcomes Refugees - Building Bridges Not Walls'
Police talk to one of the protesters, Jean Rathbone, who is wearing
a 'Votes For Women' suffragett sash
The north side of the embassy building faces the main road on which
the protest was taking place and is not covered like the other 3 sides
The protest was at the pedestrian entrance to the Embassy garden,
and those entering and leaving were offered flyers
The protest was organised by Wandsworth Momentum
We were told about Charlotte Despard, a leading suffragette, who devoted
much of her time to helping the poor
of Battersea, living for some years above a welfare shop on the Nine Elms
site now occupied by the US embassy.
She was one of the founders of the Women's Freedom League, a militantt non-violent
breakaway from the Pankhurst-dominated WSPU.
Retired US Trade Unionist Sam Weinstein, now resident in London, holds
