CND Supporters Tred Well-Worn Route to Aldermaston

A rally in London’s Trafalgar Square, organised by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), will launch a weekend of action centred on a four-day march to the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) at Aldermaston in Berkshire.

Speakers at the rally calling on the Government to stop expansion of the site, which provides the warheads for the UK’s nuclear deterrent, were set to include former cabinet minister and veteran peace campaigner Tony Benn, actor Corin Redgrave and Roger Lloyd Pack, who played Trigger in Only Fools and Horses and was an early protester.

Roger Lloyd Pack said a new generation of campaigners would be saying no to a “new generation of nukes”.

I am fearful at the prospect of investment in a new weapons programme which only increases the likelihood of nuclear weapons being used,” he added.
