In his speech called for the removal of all nuclear bases as they were a relic of the cold war and we must move on from that mind-set. Jeremy Corbyn MP , said that there was no moral cause that would condone the possession of nuclear weapons .He said that they have failed to buy us international influence and cited the achievements of Nelson Mandela - who had brought about the peaceful end of aparteid in his country and the renunciation of nuclear weapons - and all without a single nuclear weapon.
He went on to say, "We are here today so as not to be part of the silent acceptance of nuclear weapons - we are hear today to stand up and speak for all those who do not think that nuclear weapons make for a safer world. We are here to say No to nuclear and Yes to Peace".
Kate Hudson, CND Chair, spoke passionately of the need to protest against the replacement and upgrading of the Trident Nuclear Submarine's weapons system and called for a full public debate on the issue.
Torrential rain, hail, and thunder and lightening did little to curb the enthusiastic response of the campaigners who vowed to continue their protests - in agreement with the CND slogan "Now more than Ever"
