For the second year running, a cycle ride, called the “Vanunu Freedom Ride”, has been organised in support of Vanunu’s struggle for freedom and aims to highlight Israel’s and Britain’s continuing possession of nuclear weapons. The Ride began on Saturday 7th April at Faslane on the Clyde where Britain’s nuclear-armed “Trident” submarines are based. We've now cycled over 600 miles via the Menwith Hill US spy base in Yorkshire and the US airbase at Lakenheath in Suffolk where US nuclear weapons are stored. We will arrive in London on April 21st, to deliver a letter and petition to Downing Street and then go on to the Israeli Embassy where an hour-long vigil will be held.
Hackney and Islington CND are organising a big welcome for the ride outside the town hall on Mare Street at 2pm so get on your bikes and join us for the final few miles of the Ride.
