Over 1,400 people marched on the Faslane nuclear submarine base, situated on the Clyde, last Sunday. It was the largest Scrap Trident demonstration in Scotland since the mass protest which greeted the G8 in 2005.

Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon was not at the demonstration. But she made a statement in support of the campaign.
