    Today Merseyside CND members joined thousands to protest in London with a huge scarf to call on the Government to “wrap up” the Trident nuclear missiles programme.

    The pink-coloured scarf, knitted by people across the world, was wrapped around the Ministry of Defence building in central London as part of the demonstration.

    After the 2015 general election, 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: Trident must be scrapped, not replaced.
