Anti-nuclear demonstration

Sat 9 Aug 2014. Transport from Sheffield.

The Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) at Aldermaston and Burghfield are the nuclear bomb factories which make Britain's nuclear warheads. Ahead of an expected Parliamentary vote in 2016 on whether the government should spend over £100 BILLION on a new nuclear weapons system, there will be increasing demonstrations at AWE calling for Trident and its replacement to be scrapped. Come to the demonstration on the roll-out day; the 69th anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki. Hundreds of people have been knitting beautiful pieces of pink wool and crochet to connect the AWE factories with a seven mile pink scarf. Coaches from Sheffield are being arranged, with sponsorship from Lush who are very supportive, cost £26 (deposit £10 to book a place). They will set off 7am from top of Pond Hill opposite The Penny Black. Please contact if you want to join in:
