Left-wing human rights group Amnesty International gathered outside the U.S. embassy in London Thursday in protest at supposed abuses during President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.
The ‘100 statues’ protest saw a small crowd of people dressed as the Statue of Liberty chanting slogans such as “no ban”, “no wall” and “refugees welcome”.
The group has been critical of President Trump’s temporary travel ban, and his decision to build a wall along the border with Mexico.
Kate Allen, Amnesty International UK’s Director, told Pakistanti outlet Geo News: “In the space of just 100 days, President Trump has done untold damage to the USA’s already less-than-perfect reputation for upholding human rights.
“If the Statue of Liberty stands for anything, it stands for willingness to shelter people uprooted through war and intolerance.
“It’s a crying shame that President Trump’s administration cares so little for what the Statue of Liberty represents.”
