12 noon, Saturday 13th June
Ellerbeck Bridge, RAF Fylingdales, Whitby, North Yorkshire
There are now two US Missile Defence bases in Britain. Tony Blair handed over Fylingdales in 2003 and Gordon Brown added Menwith Hill base in 2007.
There has been no public consultation or vote on Britain's involvement in US Missile Defence - in fact an aggressive system creating renewed tensions between the US and Russia. The Bush administration tried to expand the system from into Poland and the Czech Republic, prompting a huge wave of protests. Other European countries are concerned that the US is dragging the whole continent into a new conflict.
Join the rally at Ellerbeck and then march to the gates of Fylingdales!
