Nuclear weapons are insane

No to nukes

ABOUT 200 determined protesters demonstrated outside the Faslane nuclear base in Scotland last weekend. Buses travelled from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and beyond to take people to join the protest against weapons of mass destruction. Three people managed to get inside the base and some 17 people were arrested. Speakers included Tommy Sheridan MSP and Jill Hubbard from Globalise Resistance. Protester Lance Good argued, "We are the global community. Wherever there is injustice we will be there."

A major protest is now planned in Glasgow on 2 June under the slogan "Love the planet. Trash Trident".
