On the campaign trail
Tridents refits are done in Plymouth, right? And at a time of world-wide nuclear proliferation, war and a proclamation by nuclear scientists that the ‘Domesday clock‘ is closer to midnight (now that doesn’t sound good), CND, the Stop the War Coalition, and the British Muslim Initiative are organising a national demonstration on Saturday, February 24, calling for ‘No Trident’ and ‘Troops Home from Iraq.’ It is expected to be Britain’s largest anti-nuclear demonstration in decades.
Kate Hudson, chair of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, said, “A decision not to replace Trident is the best way for Britain to ensure its future security. It must be taken in tandem with government initiatives towards its stated goal of multilateral disarmament: backing a World Summit on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, and working towards a Nuclear Weapons Convention banning all such weapons.”
Read the press release for more details, and great links to polls saying the decision to replace Trident should be taken by parliament, not the Prime Minister alone.
