MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The rally in London, which was organized by columnist and political activist Owen Jones, is taking place outside Downing Street 10, the office of UK Prime Minister Theresa May, the BBC reported.

On January 27, Trump signed an executive order "Protecting The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States," which suspends entry to the country for all nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days.
The decisions caused massive outcry in the targeted countries as well as in the European Union. Over 1.4 million people signed an online petition at the website of the UK Parliament and government demanding to prevent Trump from making a state visit to the United Kingdom.
