Support for Bairns not Bombs

On Saturday 4th April, I joined thousands at a demonstration and rally to protest against Trident Nuclear Weapons.

Speakers included Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland; Patrick Harvie MSP, Co-Convenor, Scottish Greens; Katy Clark MP (Labour); Cat Boyd, Radical Independence Campaign; Sasha Callaghan, Disability History Scotland; Nuala Watt, Human Beings on Benefits; Ann Henderson, Assistant Secretary, STUC; and singers Karine Polwart and Penny Stone.

Scottish Greens gathered in George Square to 
call for a stop to renewal of Trident nuclear weapons.

This event highlighted the opposition of the SNP, Greens, Plaid Cymru and a handful of Labour rebels to the main UK parties plan to replace Trident at a cost of £100Bn and keep nuclear weapons in Scotland for the next 50 years.
