Three cheers for RUSI. This awesome body agrees with us that CASD is totally unnecessary. So we were right all along. Maybe one day they and the world will agree that nuclear weapons are a useless and expensive folly.

People - please don't forget that there is a big debate on Trident next week. The Lib Dem Federal and Scottish Conferences are on in Glasgow 14th-18th with the Trident debate on Tuesday 17th - make your voice heard and your presence felt - look out for the demos along with CND & SCND...... WE WANT RID OF IT! It's an expensive "big boys' toy"!!!

 

Trident is on the Agenda at the Liberal Democrats Conference!

Scrap Trident on Facebook has linked up with other orgnisations to put the message across -

https://www.facebook.com/ScrapTrident

 I have added our SNTT Cause to their page.

Scottish CND will have a big presence outside the Conference in Glasgow - here is what they have sent me this morning. I quote,

"Sat 14 Sept - SCND Time to Scrap Trident Protest and Rally outside the Liberal Democrats UK Conference (Glasgow)


Assemble: SECC, outside Clyde Auditorium 11.45 am


Rally 11.30 -12.30


This event is being organised to send a clear message to Conference delegates that when they debate Trident at their conference - they should be voting to scrap it and in so doing allow the resources which Trident replacement will swallow to be spent on decent things such as Health, Education and Jobs. The action will also highlight the moral, environmental and legal case for Scrapping Trident.

Please support this event. Bring your banners. Help Scottish CND sent a clear message to the Liberal Democrat conference that it is Time to Scrap Trident."

This happening prior to the actual Debate on 17th will give a lot of weight behind our protest.

Matt - although we seem to have got nowhere so far [I have felt like giving up altogether many times], I think now, especially after last night's vote on Syria in Parliament, is exactly the right time to ramp up the protesting. The Lb Dem Cnference is on in Glasgow in two weeks - I think we may well get a lot of support on the back of the vote on Syria.

Comment by Matt Hill on August 29, 2013 at 18:56

Just out of curiosity, where do members of this group stand on protesting the issue?  Waste of time?  Best thing ever?  Somewhere in between?

Comment by Rebekah Gronowski on August 29, 2013 at 18:47

Janet - do you want a Page on FB rather than the Causes Page?

Comment by Rebekah Gronowski on August 29, 2013 at 18:46

I have been putting the Facebook SNTT Causes page link up on my home page on a daily basis and will continue to do so until the Conference. I edited the text so that it was easier to read.

Trident is on the Agenda at the Liberal Democrats Conference!

September 14th - 18th promises to be a lively time in Glasgow this year.

Just one hour from Faslane and the Trident nuclear weapons system, thousands of Liberal Democrats will be debating the party's future Defence Policy.

The Policy Debate is on Tuesday 17th September at 11.50 a.m.

Can we at last come out in favour of signing a Nuclear Weapons Convention at NPT talks in 2015 leading to multilateral disarmament?

Will unilateralism get more votes this time?

Can we stop the seemingly inevitable upgrading of Vanguard to Successor submarines and will CASD (Continuous at Sea Deterrence) finally come to an end?

Just how many subs will be voted in - if any?

If you are a member, book NOW and support the peacemakers in the party.

If you are not able to come to Conference, why not post your ideas here - we are listening!

In reply to Janet: I just look after the web site and the Facebook page for Kingston Peace Council. There is a brief article in the Kingston Peace Council August newsletter about Jaine Rose's pink wool initiative (www.woolagainstweapons.co.uk), and I thought her logo would make a good thumbnail, for both the KPC web site and the Facebook post, to help spread the word. I don't know if any of the KPC people are knitting. I certainly think everyone should be encouraged to knit a piece for the scarf, though I haven't knitted since I was about 7 years old, so it would take me ages.
No I won't be coming to Glasgow, sorry.
