Donald Trump arrived in Britain yesterday evening in Britain for a NATO summit & this afternoon thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people will be gathering on the streets of central London to say no to NATO, no to robbing us of our NHS & generally telling Trump the fascistic cunt to FUCK OFF.
NATO might be the longest standing military alliance in world history (so we are told) with the current summit here in Britain being attended by Donald Trump as well as leaders from other signatory member nations, the purpose of which is in part to mark or commemorate the 70th anniversary of the North Atlantic Treaty’s inception. But post the Cold War what has NATO become other then hired goons for the Military Industrial Complex, there’s a country full of poverty stricken people with brown skin but has an abundance of natural resources usually predominately oil, then NATO is always ready to go bomb & plunder & generally leave the country in a far worse state. Weird how Nigel Farage wants the UK out of EU, but has no problem with us being part of NATO, despite the fact that it’s stipulated with the North Atlantic Treaty that an attack on one signatory member state is attack on all signatory member states, thus if the United States is attacked due to its dubious foreign policy then that entangles the UK militarily.
I guess NATO bombing the shit out of countries full of poverty-stricken people with brown skin to plunder their nation of it’s natural resources, won’t be the primary reason the majority of people will be protesting in central London this afternoon, no I’d imagine the primary reason the vast majority of people will be protesting Donald Trump will be the revelation that the Tory government have been in secret negotiations with the Trump administration to give American corporations ‘full market access’ to the NHS.
It was Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who last week of course held a press conference where he revealed 400+ pages of documentation revealing the Tories have indeed been in secret negotiations to give ‘full market access’ to the NHS in a proposed free trade deal with the United States & ‘full market access’ is code for the privatisation of the NHS, so no fucking wonder people would want to come onto the streets to protest fearful that post Brexit we could see the end of this nation’s most treasured institution & one of this nation’s greatest achievements.
Despite Corbyn having produced documented evidence that the Tories are planning the privatisation of the NHS, granting Trump & his billionaire vampirical capitalist buddies access to be able to have a feeding frenzy in its privatisation, the Tories response to this has been to accused Corbyn & Labour of fearmongering, spreading fake news & propagating a conspiracy theory. I think the Tories know an awful lot more than Labour this General Election campaign when it comes to spreading fake news, as for conspiracy theories, I seriously doubt Jeremy Corbyn gets his news from Infowars or is a regular listener to Alex Jones’s radio show, however Donald Trump does appear to be an avid reader of Infowars & in the past has seemed awfully friendly with Alex Jones.
I’m certainly fearful as fuck that in a post Brexit Britain we could see the end of universal healthcare particularly as less then 2 years ago I suffered a heart attack & thus I know from very personal experience about the NHS saving lives, I’ll certainly be protesting this afternoon against Trump robbing us of the NHS, but I’ll also be there because I’m a trans woman & no trans woman can forget the war on trans people being orchestrated by the Trump administration.
This afternoon in central London I’ll waving my Trans Pride flag, as Trump’s administration since the very the moment he took office has seemed to have had a particular prejudice against trans people, crushing legal protections for trans people & supporting laws which discriminate against trans people in the United States. I just know some fuckwit is going to ask me how does the Trump administration persecuting trans people in the United States affect me as a trans person living in Britain because apparently I shouldn’t care about trans people if they don’t live in Britain. There is such a thing as the ‘Trump effect’ which has reached these shores in the form of the homophobic/transphobic protests there’s recently been outside schools in Birmingham, which no doubt have been spurred on due to funding from the Christian Right/Far-Right in the United States who feel emboldened because Trump the fascistic bigoted cunt is in the White House.
