As part of the no US nukes day of action on Saturday 23 September, CND sent a Citizens’ Weapons Inspection team to RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk. Our aim was to search the base for nuclear weapons. However, base authorities refused us access and also blocked our attempts to hand in a letter expressing our concerns to the base commander.
Our CWI team then held a protest at the gates to condemn the lack of transparency and oversight of nuclear weapons deployments that have no democratic mandate or popular support.
We made a short video about the inspection attempt which is now available to watch.
We’d like to thank our colleagues at the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, who helped fund the production of the video. Find out how you can support our No US nukes in Britain campaign here.
