50 people participate in awareness raising activity about nuclear weapons in Plymouth
About 50 volunteers participated in a local awareness raising activity in Devonport (Plymouth) on 1 November 2010, to highlight the dangers linked to the refitting of nuclear submarines at Devonport.
"Trident is not just bad for Plymouth, it is bad for everyone," said John Robb, local Tamarians member. "An ever-dwindling number of jobs is a poor reward for housing a facility that is not only immoral and illegal, but is a real and present danger to the 250,000 who live in the City. The dockyard walls, while formidable, do not stop radiation."
Mary Kemmenoe of Downderry said, "The deployment of armed Trident submarines is an ongoing criminal threat to the World, which as citizens of conscience, we feel we have a duty to try and prevent."
