Massive protest in Minneapolis against Trump's Muslim ban. (Fight Back! News/Staff)

About 15,000 people marched through the streets of downtown here, Jan. 31 to protest Trump’s Muslim ban. The protest was organized by the Twin Cities-based Anti-War Committee.

Meredith Aby-Keirstead, a spokesperson from the Anti-War Committee stated, “We will not be silent as Trump promotes anti-Muslim bigotry. It is criminal for the U.S. to bomb and attack other countries and then turn away refugees when the U.S. has destroyed their homelands. It is outrageous for Trump to consider doing this while at the same time planning to expand the war in Iraq and Syria!”
