Campaigners to join fast against Trident

Friday 31st July 2015

ANTI-NUCLEAR campaigners announced yesterday that they will join an international “fast against nuclear weapons” next week.

The four-day protest, in which participants will only consume water, will start next Thursday in London and Edinburgh, as well as in France, Germany and the US, to mark the 70th anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing.

Fasters in Britain will demand the abolition of Trident, with the London fast, organised by Trident Ploughshares, taking place outside the Ministry of Defence. There will also be peaceful protests and die-ins outside Parliament and Downing Street.

Trident Ploughshares activist Angie Zelter said: “I am fasting for real security for all. Nuclear weapons must be banned and the world community must work together to tackle climate change.

“Major political and economic changes must be made if our world is to support life in the future.

“Our presence outside the Ministry of Defence on this 70th anniversary of the nuclear war crimes committed by the US in Hiroshima and Nagasaki is a demand for change. Trident must not be renewed.”
