outside one of serco's offices
In a day called by the Trident Ploughshares Muriel Lesters affinity group, two groups of "inspectors" spent the day visiting the offices of...
- Serco (part of joint venture company AWE-ml who have 25-yr contract to run AWE Aldermaston, home of Britain's nuclear warhead production);
- Rolls Royce (make nuclear power plant/steam generator for Trident submarine fleet - and the next lot, presumably);
- BNFL (all round bad guys - and Sellafield supplies Pu for the warheads);
- Lockheed Martin (lease Trident D5 missile to the UK government .. and, another of the three comapnies who make up AWE-ml and run Aldermaston);
- Rio Tinto (mine uranium on aboriginal lands, amongst many other generally bad things)
.. and asking annoying questions .. and generally being in the way.
No-one arrested, though some interaction with police/security.
TP are calling a blockade on 10 April at Aldermaston, see http://www.tridentploughshares.org.uk/aldermaston
