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.
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.
