THE Isle of Wight will add its voice to the global condemnation of President Donald Trump's travel ban on mainly Muslim citizens and refugees, at a demonstration tomorrow (Tuesday) evening.

People will gather at St Thomas' Square, Newport, from 6pm.

Almost one million people have signed a petition calling for the cancellation of President Trump's state visit to the UK later this year and a demonstration, expected to attract tens of thousands of protesters, will be held at Downing Street tonight (Monday).

All are welcome to attend tomorrow's event in Newport, to stand up for the rights of law abiding citizens and refugees across the world and send a clear message that no-one should banned from travel due top their religious beliefs.

Speaking in support of the event, Isle of Wight Green Party parliamentary candidate Vix Lowthion said: "'The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’

"Whilst standing up for refugees in a town square on a dark winter’s night may not set the world alight, we join many thousands of other concerned people across the country in taking the first of many steps to condemn the actions of President Trump, and those who support him. 

"History will judge us at this moment, just as history judges citizens who turned a blind eye in the 1930s. I urge islanders to take 60 minutes out of their day, and join us in Newport on Tuesday evening."
