News from Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament

Join veteran peace activist and CND Vice-President Bruce Kent for the No Faith in Trident national tour. Throughout the month of April, Bruce will lead the public debate with faith communities across Britain about the future of Trident – Britain’s nuclear weapons system. 

Now is the crucial time to get involved! In 2016, parliament will debate and vote on whether Britain should replace Trident with a new system – making Britain a nuclear armed state for many decades to come. However, the majority of the population wants the government to scrap Trident… not least because of the huge amounts of money it costs, and the massive bill for replacement: over £100 billion at a conservative estimate. With government spending cuts increasing, people are demanding that the money should be spent on real human needs, not on weapons of mass destruction.

Bruce will be highlighting the opportunity cost of Trident, particularly with regard to addressing poverty and humanitarian issues, as well as the legal and moral issues involved with weapons of mass destruction.

We hope you'll join Bruce for the discussion about Britain’s nuclear weapons system and whether or not it should be replaced. This is an issue of the utmost importance to our communities, and to the country as a whole, affecting not only public spending and our shared security, but the role we play in the world and our compliance with international law.
