CND condemns the return of US nuclear weapons to Britain: get involved with our campaign to stop this extremely dangerous and destabilising development!
Following news that plans to bring the new B61-12 nuclear bomb to Lakenheath airbase in Suffolk are gathering pace, CND is renewing calls for the UK to refuse to allow the US to site its nuclear weapons in Britain.
CND supporters have repeatedly protested at RAF Lakenheath since we first heard the news, with the most recent action a Citizens’ Weapons Inspection in September, as part of a national day of action. We are also legally challenging development works at the base.
US nuclear weapons coming to Britain make us all a target in any nuclear war. This is a national issue – we want everyone to understand what a nuclear attack would mean for them.
The UK government can stop this from happening. If we show enough public resistance we can press them to reject these plans and prevent these terrible weapons from making us a target.
US nuclear weapons coming to Britain make us all a target in any nuclear war. This is a national problem not a regional one – we want everyone to understand what a nuclear attack would mean for them.
Actions you can take today:
- Get involved: sign the call for no US nukes on UK soil
- Contact your MP asking them to oppose the stationing of US nuclear weapons in Britain
- Order materials such as leaflets and petitions to raise awareness
- Download a poster for display on a stall or in your window
110 nuclear bombs were stored at the airbase but they were removed in 2008 following persistent popular protest. Without public opposition, led by CND, they would still be here today. We stopped these weapons before – will you help us stop them again?
