Arrests at Coupolt, Brian Quail imprisoned until 3rd August

The Trident Ploughshares' Coulport Disarmament Camp has seen lively actions all this week to disrupt the Trident nuclear weapons programme. SCND executive member Brian Quail was one of the first to be arrested when he blockaded the road by locking arms with Angie Zelter, founder member of TP. Both refused bail conditions that would restrict their access to the base or the camp, and expect to remain in custody until 3rd August.
Other Trident Ploughshares activists have been arrested for blockading, and there are about 70 people who have been committed and active in actions at or around the camp. International and local campaigners at the camp are celebrating the Nuclear Ban Treaty that was adopted at United Nations last week. SCND Vice Chair Janet Fenton who was at the treaty negotiations with a strong delegation from the SCND Ban Treaty Group is resident at the camp along with SCND members form Aberdeen, Edinburgh and other parts of the country. In addition to blockades to disrupt activity, the Trident Ploughshares camp provides a great opportunity to exchange information and join colourful street action around the base and in nearby towns.
