Wed 13th July           STOP TRIDENT! – Mass Lobby of Parliament

MPs will vote this year on whether or not to replace Trident, the UK’s nuclear weapons system, at a cost of at least £205 billion. It’s vital that as many MPs as possible hear the arguments against Trident replacement from their constituents. CND, along with twenty national organisations, has called a mass lobby of MPs to take place in Parliament on Wednesday 13 July. Come and tell your MP why you want them to Stop Trident.  You can contact your MP and ask them for a meeting using the CND website. You don’t need an appointment to take part, but it’s advisable to make an appointment in case your MP is busy.
