Well done to the 75,000 people who took to the streets of London on a rainy Tuesday to protest against Trump and the hatred he represents 💪 #TrumpProtest https://t.co/w9ZSDuduRw— Owen Jones🌹 (@OwenJones84) 4 June 2019
Having been one of the main ringleaders of this national disgrace, the wee lad was obviously going to exaggerate a wee bit. If the last Loser's Vote march is anything to go by, then we could surmise that perhaps only a third of Owen's 75,000 estimate attended. By all accounts the protest was a damp squib, despite all the hard work of the BBC and their comrades in trying to whip it up.
Going by many eyewitness accounts and several videos that have appeared, the protesters themselves certainly appeared to have been 'whipped up'. Despite all the rubbish about this being a "peaceful" protest, anyone suspected of Trump sympathies that got in the way was treated with anything but "peace", man.
First there was the middle-aged man who was surrounded by a baying mob and doused in milkshake.
Then there was the elderly man who was manhandled and shoved to the ground by stewards who were clearly wearing Unite (the union) baseball caps.
Disgraceful. Needless to say neither incident, nor the abuse directed at Jewish demonstrators described by Mahyar Tousi in the previous post, has received much attention in the press.
So, which 'honourable' Labour members attended this national disgrace? Obviously the Great Leader was there, a keynote speaker no less, but which MPs actually showed their faces? Like the protest itself, not as many as previously expected, but we suspect that many turned up, witnessed the debacle and quietly slipped away without so much as a Twitter selfie. Below is a list of the ones we know were involved.
Richard Burgon - speaker
Clive Lewis - speaker
Laura Pidcock - speaker
Emily Thornberry - speaker
