Two Pensioners blockade Faslane
This morning two Trident Ploughshares activists sat in the road at the North Gate of Faslane Trident Submarine base, stopping any traffic from entering the base for 15 minutes as part of the Faslane Peace Camps call for 30 Days of Action.
For details of other actions to mark the anniversary, see:
Joy Mitchell said:
"I have to come and do my small part in disrupting the immoral and illegal work that goes on in this base. "
Joan Meredith said:
"To accuse us of Breaching the Peace when deployment of these indiscriminate weapons is allowed to continue unchallenged by the authorities is wrong."
Faslane Peace Camp was started in June 1982. Many hundreds of people have come there to protest about the continuing deployment of illegal and immoral nuclear weapons from the Clyde bases. The camp is calling for 30 days of action to mark the 30 years of resistance to nuclear weapons.
