PARTY PROTEST 6-Zefur

Join the Facebook event.

We need your help: make Vote Out Trident as successful as possible by chipping in to the event here!

MPs elected in May will take the final decision on whether or not to replace the Trident nuclear weapon system at a cost of £100bn.

This election is our chance to vote out Trident!

In solidarity with the blockade of the Trident submarine base at Faslane in Scotland - and to mark the Global Day of Action on Military Spending - join us for an evening of party and protest outside the Ministry of Defence in Westminster.

Hear from musicians, poets and very special speakers (tba!) as we protest against £100bn for new nuclear weapons, including: 

  • Zefur Wolves (feat. Cian Ciaran of Super Furry Animals)
  • Beans on Toast
  • Potent Whisper
  • plus very special guests to be announced

6-8pm, Monday 13 April, Ministry of Defence, Westminster (map)

Global Wave

Governments will be meeting at the UN from April 27 – May 22 to discuss nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. Civil society is joining together in a global mobilisation calling on governments to abolish nuclear weapons by doing simple Global Wave actions. These are simple actions waving goodbye to nuclear weapons, which can be photographed or filmed for posting on social media with the #globalwave2015 #wavetonukes hashtags or sending to us in New York to present to the governments.

The Global Wave will start at a huge peace rally in New York on April 26, and then go around the world in 24 hours arriving back in New York on April 27 as the government conference begins.

The action will reach us in Britain at 1:20pm on Monday, April 27th. Yorkshire CND is coordinating the actions in the UK - please get in touch (info@yorkshire.org.uk) to let them know if you have anything planned
