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
