Re-posting: Scrap Trident

Scotland and the UK have had nuclear weapons for 50 years. Now the government is planning to spend £100 billion to replace Trident while funding for health, education, pensions and disability benefits is being slashed. £5 billion has already been spent designing the new weapons.

Trade unions, faith and community groups, and people from all walks of life across Scotland are overwhelmingly opposed to these horrendous weapons of mass destruction. If we act now we can stop nuclear weapons being based on the Clyde for 50 more years and lead the way to a nuclear free world.

A broad-based coalition of groups has come together to call for scrapping Trident and funding human needs. Whether you are for independence or not this is the time to demonstrate your opposition to immoral and wasteful nuclear weapons. Join us on the streets of Glasgow and take action at Faslane to demand that Trident be scrapped.
