As corporate resistance to US President Donald Trump's travel ban grows, Londoners are preparing to protest against it for the second time in a week.

Trump has banned visitors from seven Middle Eastern countries, and tens of thousands of protestors are expected to protest outside the US embassy in London on Saturday, calling for Theresa May to stop "supporting" the ban.

The Prime Minister has said she does not support the policy, but some parliamentarians believe she should distance herself further from Trump. More than 1m people have signed a petition arguing Trump's state visit to the UK this year should be cancelled.

The protest against Trump will take place between 11am and 2pm. After assembling at Grosvenor Square, protesters will march to Downing Street, where tens of thousands gathered on Monday night to support the same cause.

The action is being organised by various groups including the Stop the War Coalition, Stand up to Racism and the Muslim Council of Britain, which says May's "collusion with Trump must end".

More than 8,000 people have said they will attend.

Demonstrations against Trump have also taken place in America this week, with thousands turning up at airports to show their support for refugees detained by the authorities just hours after Trump signed his executive order banning people from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from travelling to the US.
