Boycotts, protests to greet Trump on MS visit

09 Décembre 2017

Saturday morning, Mississippians line the path of the presidential motorcade as President Donald Trump makes his way to the state capitol for the opening of two MS history museums.

Protesters gather along High Street to express disapproval for President Trump's presence at the opening of the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.

Not everyone in attendance is welcoming of the president's visitation.

Le Bayern a joué des finales de Ligue des champions. "Le PSG cherche un grand nom pour le remplacer", a-t-il déclaré. Ménès a d'ailleurs lancé: "Passera-t-il l'hiver?" Passera-t-il l'été? C'est beaucoup plus improbable.

Some black leaders - including civil rights leader and Georgia congressman John Lewis - boycotted Saturday's event, saying Trump has sown racial division instead of racial harmony.

Other activists declined to attend the dedication of these two museums entirely. But the president's visit does not come without controversy. "President Trump's disparaging comments about women, the disabled, immigrants and National Football League players disrespect the efforts of Fannie Lou Hamer, Aaron Henry, Medgar Evers, Robert Clark, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and countless others who have given their all for MS to be a better place".

"It is my appreciation of martyrs both known and unknown that will not allow me to share the stage with a president who does not have a containing commitment to civil rights", Lumumba said at the press conference.
