About this event

Bairns Not Bombs Scrap Trident Demo Saturday 4th 11:00am - 1:30pm George Square, Glasgow Speakers: Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland; Patrick Harvie MSP, Co-Convenor, Scottish Greens; Katy Clark MP (Labour); Cat Boyd, Radical Independence Campaign; Sasha Callaghan, Disability History Scotland; Nuala Watt, Human Beings on Benefits; Ann Henderson, Assistant Secretary, STUC; and singers Karine Polwart and Penny Stone. Despite the opposition of the SNP, Greens, Plaid Cymru and a handful of Labour rebels the main UK parties plan to replace Trident at a cost of £100Bn and keep nuclear weapons in Scotland for the next 50 years. But Scotland could turn the tide on the decision on Trident replacement and the future of nuclear disarmament worldwide. A solid bloc of anti-Trident MPs from Scotland in the next Westminster Parliament could hold the balance of power and stop Trident in its tracks. And most countries support a Ban on Nuclear Weapons. The deadlock of Mutually Assured Destruction is crumbling and there is a now a chance to Scrap Trident and Ban the Bomb. Let's seize the moment and send a strong message that Scotland will not accept Trident any longer with a mass demonstration. Be at the Bairns Not BOMBS Demonstration. George Square. Glasgow 4 April. Assemble 10:30. March 11am. Rally 12noon. And we urge you to consider joining in resisting UK plans to continue threatening the world with nuclear holocaust by engaging in civil disobedience. Join or Support the Big Blockade at Faslane Nuclear Weapons Base 13 April. Nonviolent Direct Action Training 12 April in a Glasgow venue. And we all need to put pressure on MPs to take the No Trident Replacement Pledge. Vote for MP’s who make a commitment to vote NO on TRIDENT. VOTE TRIDENT OUT on 7 May. Go to to http://scraptrident.org/ to sign the Scrap Trident Pledge and read the Blockade Briefing. And don't forget to Vote in the General Election for MPs who pledge to vote No on Trident Replacement.
