Stop Trident Demonstration
Feb
27

27 February 2016, London (United Kingdom)

 

CND is calling a national demonstration to protest against Britain's nuclear weapons system: Trident.

Join CND to say No to government plans to buy a new system at a cost of £100 billion. Parliament will be voting on this in 2016. The majority of the British people, including the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and other parliamentary party leaders, oppose nuclear weapons. They are weapons of mass destruction that can kill millions. Let's get message out loud and clear: we don't want Trident and we don't want a new Trident.
