The government are considering replacing Trident (which is reaching its 'sell by' date) - with all the concommitent costs involved not to mention being in contravention of its duties under the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty. Faslane 365 is seeking to draw attention to this by blockading the base every day for 1 year.
Over 200 people arrested so far (since the 1st of October), but minimal media coverage.....
Is anybody else involved/interested....?

Can you start with a weblink to the campaign?

Coming from a country that has banned all things nuclear I'm certainly interested in the topic. Our blog is discussing this at the moment. See this site .

P.S. Unfortunately this forum area has gone to sleep lately!

Please if anyone feels moved to do so WRITE TO YOUR MP - the media seem intent on ignoring the action. I will be there this weekend with the Northern Quakers (a.k.a. The White Poppies)

Hey Donk. Keith on our blog is a Quaker. There is so much going on at the moment that the media has got its hands full with sensationalist war and scandal headlines. What you're doing is great. Keep it up.

Thanks for sorting out the blog link! Not sure what went askew there. Took a few months to get our blog going but with perseverence we now get google-hit constantly!

Well here I am back from Faslane - it was interesting and educational as well as very wet and cold! If anyone wants to know more I will happily expand on this.
Does anyone else on Mumsnet care about whether or not huge sums are spent on replacing Trident nuclear submarines?
