Faslane Blockade - 22 October 2001

Strathclyde Police are promising that they will be mounting their largest police operation for this October's big blockade at Faslane naval base, Scotland. Their strategy Code-named 'Operation Foundation' includes plans to draft in hundreds of extra police and to use cells across the region to hold those arrested.

Special Branch and other services have recently returned from Gorleben in Germany (site of regular nuclear train protests) where they drooled over their German mates beating up protesters.

Protesters though aren't fazed and are vowing to make this year's Faslane blockade massive. It's taking place on 22 October so get up there and help block up the police cells. A detailed 10-page briefing with maps, photos, legal details and tactics is now available.

Action Line - 0141 423 1222
