In early 2016, MPs will vote to make a final decision on replacing the Trident – the UK’s Cold War nuclear weapons system.
We have to send a clear message to MPs and to candidates standing for election this May: Trident must be scrapped, not replaced.
Please help us to do this. One way is to join us on Saturday 24th January: we will be encircling government and parliament buildings with a peace scarf knitted by thousands of people.
Join us for a mass protest against government plans to spend £100 billion replacing Trident.
Let’s meet people’s real needs. Cut Trident – not jobs, health or education.
12 noon – 3pm
Saturday 24th January 2015
