Description

There will be a major demonstration against Trident in London on Saturday 27 February. The march and rally is called by CND and speakers include Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Book a place on the bus from Glasgow/Edinburgh.

There is also accommodation overnight for people making their own travel arrangements.


 

CND has called for a massive Stop Trident demonstration in London on Feb 27th to show that the opposition is growing. There will be a march to Trafalgar Square where some great speakers will address a rally (including our First Minister Nicola Stugeon!). She is making the trek from Scotland because it is really important so let's have a good Scottish crowd present. There is a bus which will leave Glasgow (George Square) at 9pm on the Friday 26th then onto Edinburgh (Waterloo Place) to leave around 10.15pm and down to London. This will have us arriving early morning (so that the driver gets a rest).

The march starts at noon and we will have a specific place for the Scottish bloc to meet up (details later). We leave London at 1800hrs on 27th arriving back into Edinburgh in the early hours. If you don’t have a car or a lift waiting, can’t get a night bus or stay with friends then e-mail Eileen  edinburghcnd@yahoo.com to arrange some local accommodation in Edinburgh.

Tickets which you can book online are £40 full price and there’s a supported ticket of £20 for students/ unwaged. (plus booking fee) As the bus is so expensive we are asking as many people as possible to pay full price. Maybe you know some people who are unable to go and who would subsidise you – it never hurts to ask.

For those who would prefer to arrange their own transport to London there will be a “crash space” a tube ride away from the start of the march where you can sleep on a floor on Friday and / or Saturday night. Take your own sleeping bag and mat. It will also be possible to leave luggage there during the demo. and breakfast and an evening meal will be available. Book a place and food here

If you can’t come please turn up with banners and placards to see the bus off, and you can give a donation to subsidise someone else either via Eventbrite (click get tickets) or by cheque or bank transfer. You could also help us by asking your local Trades Council for a donation. You can download a letter here. Or collect some funds yourself – collection sheet here

Please contact you MP and ask if they will stay in London that weekend and represent us at the demo. 

There are lots of good resources on CND’s website to help you spread the word and help us build the Scottish bloc at the demo.
