Join our London cycling protest one week before the election
In 2016 the British government (whoever they might be) will decide whether to scrap the Trident nuclear weapons programme once and for all, or whether to waste £100 billion on the most dangerous weapons humankind has ever produced.
It’s not hard, is it?
Wheel Stop Trident had an awesome time putting the brakes on these nuclear weapons in March – we cycled from the offices of the Trident profiteers to the nuclear bomb factory where all that money is being wasted, via groups campaigning against the cuts.
But we aren’t stopping there! We want all political parties to hear our message loud and clear in time for the general election: fund welfare not warfare!
We think the resources being wasted on nuclear weapons would be better spent on public services and responding to real security threats, like climate change. If you agree, join us on 30 April for a spot of cycling.
We will cycle to the offices of Serco, Jacobs Engineering, and Lockheed Martin, calling on them to lay down their work building nuclear weapons – these companies all profit from nuclear warhead production at Aldermaston and Burghfield AWE, near Reading. Their offices look like all other offices, but the work of these companies could cause nuclear war. Join us to protest, leaflet their workers,and show everyone where nuclear war begins (and ends!) We’ll end by making the short journey from Lockheed Martin’s office to Parliament, where the final decision on Trident replacement will be made.
Join us for any or all of our journey, with a bike or on foot!
