CND demands an end to the production of nuclear warheads and the redeployment of staff and facilities to nuclear decommissioning. It’s time to ‘Stop fooling with nuclear weapons!’ It’s Time to Scrap Trident: Protest at AWE Aldermaston on All Fools day 1st April 2013
The Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) at Aldermaston is the bomb factory that designs and manufactures nuclear warheads. The warheads for the current Trident system were built at Aldermaston. Since 2002, the government has invested in building new facilities at AWE, and recruited new staff to test, design and build the next generation of nuclear weapons.
The British economy is sliding further into crisis and more and more people are losing their jobs, homes and public services whilst the Government spends £3 billion on Trident each year.
In three years’ time the 2016 Main Gate decision on whether Trident should be replaced will be taken by Parliament – committing the UK to spend over £100 billion if it gives the go-ahead. It is vital that 2013 is a year of vibrant activity at AWE Aldermaston, so say No to Trident and its replacement.
There is a coach leaving from the lay-by outside the Travel Lodge Hotel on Maid Marian Way in Nottingham (NG1 6AJ) at 8:30am on Monday 1st April. Returning from Aldermaston at no later than 4pm, due back in Nottingham at approximately 8:00pm.
