ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. A banner reading "Build bridges, not walls" was draped across London's Tower Bridge on Friday (January 20) as part of a series of events across the world aimed at expressing displeasure at the inauguration of Donald Trump as U.S. president. Protesters on the iconic bridge held up pink letters reading "Act now!" soon after sunrise, while others unfurled the banner over the railings and a speedboat with a black flag reading "build bridges, not walls" raced down the River Thames. The protest in London was organised by the campaign group, also called "Bridges not Walls", in reference to Trump's pledge to build a wall on the Mexican border. Beside the British parliament, protesters draped banners saying "Migrants welcome here" and "Migration is older than language" over Westminster bridge. Other protests are planned in London and other British cities on Friday (January 20).
