blockade of Faslane Naval Base - 1st October 2007


Is it really a whole year since the rolling 365-day blockade of Faslane Naval Base began? (See SchNEWS 565, 581 for background.) On October 1st over a thousand people are expected to join in on one final 'Big Blockade' to round off the Faslane365 actions against Trident, Britain's own nuclear weapon of mass destruction. Entertainment for the day include Leon Rosselson and the omnipresent 'Seize the Day', a full choir and a host of Scottish MPs joining the throngs out to block all the entrances and generally make nuisances of themselves. With the current action count standing at 952, it will take one final big push on everyone's part to get over that magic 1,000... So c'mon all, you can do it!

A Faslane 365 steering group spokesperson said "We will join together to mark the end of this year's campaigning, and to make clear our determination to keep up pressure on the Scottish and UK governments to get rid of Trident and to take the lead in moving the world towards the total elimination of nuclear weapons, in accordance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and the wishes of the majority."
