Hundreds of people have walked through Cardiff in a march against racism.

Organisers, Stand Up To Racism, say the march is 'intended to send a powerful message of the depth of support for migrant rights' and to show 'opposition to the UK government's attempt to scapegoat migrants'.

Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood, joined in the march through Grangetown and Riverside, to an outdoor rally at City Hall.

Other demonstrations are taking place in London and Glasgow.

The Welsh school teacher, Juhel Miah, who was banned from entering the United States while on a school trip, will speak at the rally.

Leanne Wood will also address protesters, alongside Labour MPs Jo Stevens and Stephen Doughty, and Cardiff Central AM Jenny Rathbone.

Cardiff has a proud history of welcoming people from all parts of the world through our past trading connections, post-war immigration and the large numbers of foreign students who attend university in the city.
