Close Faslane

Issue No. 1771

PROTESTERS will blockade the Faslane Trident nuclear base on the Clyde near Glasgow on Monday. The demonstration will have a special urgency because it will also be against the bombing of Afghanistan.

Earlier this year over 1,000 people closed the base for over five hours. The police acted disgracefully, making 358 arrests. An opinion poll afterwards showed that over half of people in Scotland support non-violent direct action to get rid of nuclear weapons.

Faslane is the main operational base for the Trident nuclear weapons system. There have been several reports about how heavy handed the police will be against the blockade. Nobody should be intimidated from making a stand against nuclear weapons and war.
