Paris Protesters Create 'No-Trump Zone' During US President's Visit to France



In the wake of the first visit of US President Donald Trump in Paris, protesters are organizing a "No Trump Zone".

Protesters are organizing a "No Trump Zone" in Paris on Thursday, amid the first visit of US President Donald Trump in the French capital.

"For the people of France, who gave the Statue of Liberty to the American people, Trump is not welcome in Paris. 

We oppose his positions on the climate crisis, his anti-migrant international policy, his sexist, islamophobic and racist measures and stances, his military intentions all over the world, his neo-liberal and capitalist policy," the organizers of the event said on its Facebook page.

The improvised zone will open at 7 p.m. local time (17:00 GMT) on the Republic Square. Visitors will enjoy the orchestra and entertainment.

According to media report, another anti-Trump protest called "Paris vs. Trump" intends to meet on Thursday in the Place des Etats-Unis ("United States Square") in the 16th administrative district of the city.

Trump, accompanied by his wife Melania, arrived in Paris on July 13 on a two-day working visit.
