EdinburghCND at the Edinburgh World Justice Festival : Losing your home to the military

Monday, October 3 at 7 PM – 9 PM Quaker Meeting House Victoria Terrace

50 years ago nearly 2,000 people fled their Chagos Island homes after P. M. Harold Wilson leased the islands to America for use as a military airbase during the 1960s cold war. In return, the UK received a cheaper deal on Polaris nuclear weapons. Today the village of Gangjeong on Jeju Island, South Korea has been chosen for a US naval base to be part of it’s missile defence plan.

Come and hear the stories of these and others who have had their lives destroyed. Dave Webb, chair of UK CND will lead the discussion. #ewjf2016
