PUBLIC MEETING: CAN AUSTERITY BRITAIN AFFORD WEAPONS OF WAR AND MASS DESTRUCTION?
Tuesday 28th April 2015 we had a successful public meeting on the above subject, with guest speakers Kate Hudson CND and Chris Cole of Drone Wars UK
Political decisions on the cost of replacing Trident, as well as funding disastrous wars like those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya impact on the lives of all of us. Trident is estimated to cost in the region of £100 billion, which most people would prefer to see spent on the National Health Service, education, housing or other necessary services. Decisions on Trident and such matters will be taken by the next Parliament.
Promise from Green Candidate
Lesley Grahame Green candidate for Norwich South and an anti-war campaigner sent this message to the meeting:-
Apologies for not coming to tonight’s Cnd Stw meeting. I’m filling in at no notice at a hustings. Please tell people that I promise 100% to keep working for a nuclear weapons convention and against trident – as Norwich MP if elected.
