Scotland and the UK have had nuclear weapons for 50 years. And now, while spending on health, education, pensions and disability benefits is being slashed, the government is planning to replace Trident at a cost of £100 Billion.
But we must act now to put an end to it. A broad-based coalition of groups have come together to call for scrapping Trident and funding human needs.
Whether you are for independence or not this is the time to demonstrate your opposition to wasteful and immoral nuclear weapons. Our campaign is demanding that Trident be scrapped and the resources go to fund healthcare, education, pensions, disability benefits and more.

Broadcaster U-Turn Sees Greens, Plaid And SNP Joining Debates
Saturday 24th January 2015
SEVEN party leaders will jostle for position in two of the three TV debates, broadcasters announced yesterday in a dramatic U-turn.
A jubilant Ms Bennett last night proclaimed that the decision marked the “Green Spring.”
The news follows uproar over her exclusion from the process despite the Greens polling ahead of the Lib Dems in several recent surveys.
Broadcasters yesterday threatened to “empty chair” any party leader who refuses to take part.
The TV channels had originally announced plans for one debate to include Mr Clegg and Mr Farage and one to include Mr Clegg, in addition to the Labour and Conservative leaders.
But earlier this month Mr Cameron said he would refuse to take part unless the Greens were included — in what was seen as a cynical move to split the Labour vote.
In a joint statement, the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky said they had “continued to monitor the electoral landscape” since making their initial decision.
Ms Bennett said: “The decision to include the Greens in two debates is an acceptance by the broadcasters that we now are in an age of multi-party politics.
“This groundbreaking decision serves the interests of both the electorate and British democracy. Our membership and polling surge demonstrates that when people hear about Green Party values and policies many embrace them.”
But Sinn Fein, which currently has five abstentionist MPs, said it would challenge the decision.
Democratic Unionist Party leader Peter Robinson branded his own exclusion “unacceptable.”
And [a] Lib Dem spokesman bemoaned the exclusion of Mr Clegg from the final debate.
“We have always been clear that as a party of government, we must be able to defend our record in all the TV debates,” he said.
Campaigners against nuclear weapons on a ‘Wrap up Trident’ demo at the Ministry of Defence in London today have a new spring in their step, writes Paul Ingram. Thanks to the new electoral geometry of the 2015 general election, they could finally get to close down Britain’s £100 billion nuclear weapons programme – and not a moment too soon: here.
