Thousands Around the World Are Protesting the US Travel Ban
The best images from around the world in support of immigrants.
In London, Paris, Berlin, and Sydney this weekend, thousands of people took to the streets, unified in their protests against one policy: the United States’ new travel ban.
The worldwide reaction to Donald Trump’s ban on visitors from seven majority-Muslim countries and all refugees has been swift and loud. The ban was temporarily halted Friday night by a federal judge, a decision Trump criticized and appealed. But protesters around the world gathered this weekend anyway to show their support for immigrants and refugees on Saturday.
Here is a look at those who dedicated their time and presence this weekend to remind the world: immigrants and refugees are welcome, here, and in the US.

And further north, a local Canadian church slid in this sign:
Not from a protest or a March but well worth its place on here. Canada keeping it dignified. pic.twitter.com/J9Jyci8I11— TRUMP SIGNS (@signs_trump) February 4, 2017
