The London branch of the Marxist Women’s March, which is closely allied to Black Lives Matter UK, was a prominent organizer of the anti-Trump protests last week, in addition to a group of far-left radical individuals and organizations seeking to ban President Trump from visiting England called the “Stop Trump Coalition,” which included several columnists from The Guardian and numerous Labour Party politicians.
One of the more prominent Stop Trump Coalition organizers is Marxist Nick Dearden, who advertised for anti-Trump protests on a podcast hosted in part by self-proclaimed “communist” Ash Sarkar, who gained international attention for telling Piers Morgan that she was a communist, earning her media adoration and kudos from Elle and Teen Vogue.

Stop Trump Coalition
On February 1 2017, The Guardian posted a letter signed by the “Stop Trump Coalition” which incoherently ranted at President Trump:
“Donald Trump’s presidency is turning out to be every bit as dangerous and divisive as we feared,” they lamented. “The rhetoric of his campaign and his early executive orders have sparked a wave of fear and hatred. Those who are often already marginalised and discriminated against – especially Muslims and migrants – have been particular targets for Trump.”
The letter continues to decry President Trump for failing to address “climate change,” “discrimination,” and “disarmament.” Further the letter, which was actually published at a so-called respectable news organization continued:
“Racism, sexism, misogyny, Islamophobia, antisemitism, homophobia, war mongering, climate change denial or policies designed to boost the wealth of the already super-rich should not be rewarded or celebrated in this country.”
The letter was signedby self-proclaimed “socialist” and columnist at The Guardian Owen Jones, British Labour Party politicians Shabana Mahmood MP, Ed Miliband MP, Tulip Siddiq MP, Claude Moraes MEP, Rushanara Ali MP, Caroline Lucas MP, Mhairi Black MP, David Lammy MP, Hywel Williams MP, Clive Lewis MP, Tim Farron MP, Melanie Onn MP, Bianca Jagger, and chair for “Abortion Rights” Kerry Abel (who spoke at the rally) to name a few (full list here) .

We will not tolerate migrants, refugees and Muslims being scapegoated for injustices caused by the powerful.

The media coverage was clearly biased toward the Marxist protesters:

Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and London Mayor Sadiq Khan were some of the leftists praised by the Marxist-Leninist “Workers World Party” in a favorable article about the anti-Trump protests.
Is there a difference between the mainstream media and the communist press?
Workers.org, the Workers World Party website, breathlessly quoted Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn: “We’re asserting our rights to demonstrate and live in a world that’s not divided by misogyny, racism and hate,” He declared. “I want to live in a world where refugees are not blamed for the wars they are victims of.” The Pro-North Korea Workers World Party continued to gush that protesters “strongly defended London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a Muslim of Pakistani descent, who has been the target of racist attacks by the U.S. xenophobe in chief and the ultraright in England for his statements sympathetic to migrants.”
The hashtag #CarnivalOfResistance was used by the protesters.
The media suppresses conservative viewpoints, in case you haven’t noticed. Not all Brits were happy with the Marxist protesters and their useful idiots.
‘I Am British’ is ready to respond to the false narrative that the British people are against President Trump! They are holding a #MarchForTrump Tomorrow at the US EMBASSY at 12pm.Thank you for supporting @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/FInLTLi3wd

Hahaha! BBC makes a huge error by accidentally showing the pro Brexit demonstration gathering in London. https://t.co/0PFmtkGD9H
