CND anniversary protest at Aldermaston

Issue No. 2094

Up to 5,000 people protested at the Aldermaston atomic weapons plant in Berkshire on Easter Monday – 50 years after the first demonstration there.

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament rally was addressed by Labour MPs Jon Trickett, Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell.

Pat Arrowsmith, the organising secretary of the 1958 march, also addresssed the protest.

Protesters spread out around the plant, surrounding it in a “collective moment of noise” and pinned anti‑nuclear messages to the perimeter fence.
