VIDEO: More than 2000 protesters gather in Sheffield for mass demonstration against President Trump’s ‘divisive travel ban’
More than 2000 protesters gathered in Sheffield city centre this evening for a demonstration against US President Donald Trump’s controversial plan to restrict travel to America.
President Trump has placed a ban on refugees and travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US or being issued with an immigrant or non-immigrant visa while a 90-day extreme vetting process is carried out. Britons with dual nationality with the seven countries will not be affected.
Placard-waving protesters turned out in force outside the Town Hall at 6pm this evening to voice their concern.
