Wool against Weapons from AWE Aldermaston to AWE Burghfield

A day of creative and direct action outside the Atomic Weapons Factories in Berkshire. For two years people have been knitting sections of a seven mile long scarf to stretch between the two sites where the next generation of the UK's nuclear weapons system are being developed.

On 9 August 2014, the scarf will be unveiled - along the fence at AWE Burghfield, along pathways, up trees, past houses and passers by as far as AWE Aldermaston, where there is lots of other fun planned too.

Find out how to get involved.

1pm, Word Power Books, 43-45 West Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9DB. Admission free.

Monthly

Medway CAAT Meeting

7.30pm at Friends Meeting House, Rochester on the last Monday of each month

In Spring 2011, UK weapons were used to suppress pro-democracy protests in the Middle East & North Africa. In September, the world's arms industry arrived in the UK for a huge fair continuing their trade, arming repressive regimes and countries at risk of conflict. Join us on the last Monday of each month to discuss implications of the arms trade and what can be done to prevent further damage.
