The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

UK based Trident Ploughshares group found guilty of crossing the line at anti nuclear protest

The five members of Put Down the Sword arriving at Reading Court for their trial earlier today.

Last June they protested at AWE BURGHFIELD. They are charged with willful obstruction of the highway. A disputed crossing of a green line in the road

Update ; The @PutDownTheSword defendants have been found guilty.

Sentence: six months conditional discharge. £100 costs and £20 court surcharge. So £120 each in total.

Faslane peace camp protest in Scotland 24 January 2017

In other Protest news .. Well done Faslane Peace Camp!

We don’t want a real missile to land anywhere but if they can’t even be sure which way it will go it makes nonsense of the whole business. And if it didn’t matter the Government wouldn’t have been so keen to keep it quiet! Thank you for speaking out!
