Donald Trump’s visit to Ireland was announced on Friday night and it’s safe to say a lot of people aren’t happy about it.
The US president will be coming to Ireland in November and a protest against him has now been organised.
The ‘Say Nope To The Dope’ protest, organised by the Green Party, will take place on November 10 at College Green from 11am to 2pm.
At the time of writing, over 30,000 people have said they are interested in or attending on the Facebook event page.
By turning up in large numbers, surely we can send a clear signal to the American people; we want a less divisive, peaceful and more sustainable world?
Meet in College Green 10th November, to help hold that line. #TrumpInIreland #protest #PeoplePower https://t.co/pVIr23tGHN pic.twitter.com/rd956Y0vnl

The event page states: ‘Donald Trump's administration champions policies that are destroying our planet, destabilising international order, and reaching new political depths by appealing to racism, misogyny, xenophobia and hatred.
‘These policies do not reflect Irish people's values - we need to show him and the world that this is not normal. Decency, integrity and fact-based politics still exist and are worth defending.
‘We're calling on Irish people to tell our Government to cancel this visit; and for them to demonstrate in never-before-seen numbers should they fail to do so.
‘Join us in Dublin City Centre on Saturday 10th November 2018 at 11am and let the world hear that President Trump and his destructive politics of hate are not welcome here.’
