Protesters gathered in front of the Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto Friday afternoon, protesting Donald Trump’s recent anti-Muslim statements and celebrating Toronto’s diversity and inclusiveness.
“We can’t allow hateful anti-Muslim comments like Trump’s to go unchallenged,” said Abu Azam, a Houseperson at the Hilton Hotel Downtown Toronto. “As a Muslim myself, I am encouraged to see Canadians from all walks of life standing up to reject Trump’s hateful, vile bigotry.”
The rally comes a day after Toronto opened its arms to the first of thousands of Syrian families arriving in Toronto. “This is the kind of country I came to be part of,” added Azam.
