Saturday 27 February / 12 midday / Marble Arch, London W1H
Decommissioning the Trident nuclear weapons system and cancelling its £100bn replacement are an important part of the alternative to austerity. These weapons have no battlefield role, but are designed to kill civilians in terrifying numbers; their use would be criminal, and today the ensuing exchange would devastate life on our planet. Trident is one item of government spending that should be cut.
The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, supported by the People's Assembly, has called a demonstration this Saturday against Trident and its replacement. Transport from Cambridge is being provided by our friends in the local Stop the War group, leaving from the Backs on Queens' Road at 9.45 a.m. To book a seat for £5 (unwaged), £10 (waged), or £15 (solidarity), write to Tom Woodcock, and for more information join the Facebook event.
