Scrap Trident

There was a national demonstration against Nuclear Weapons on Saturday 13th April in Glasgow. I joined thousands of trade unions, faith and community groups and people from all walks of life in George Square to oppose these horrendous weapons of mass destruction.

 Various banners were displayed at George Square.

A broad based coalition came together to call for the scrapping of Trident Nuclear Weapons System and funding for human needs. The UK Government is planning to spend £100 billion to replace Trident while funding for health, education, pensions, and disability benefits is being cut.  £5 billion has already been spent designing the new weapons.

We can stop nuclear weapons being based on the Clyde and lead the way to a nuclear free world.
