Jointly organised with Stirling Uni Greens

ALL WELCOME

The Nukewatch report "Unready Scotland" raises sharp questions about the preparedness of the civil authorities in Scotland to respond to a serious incident involving the transport by road of UK nuclear warheads, with its unique combination of high explosives and toxic nuclear materials.

Its authors, Nukewatchers Jane Tallents and David Mackenzie, will set out the context for the report, its key findings, and comment on what response there has from the UK Ministry of Defence, the affected Scottish local authorities and the Scottish Government. 

Nukewatch monitors and tracks the movement of British weapons of mass destruction from the atomic weapon factories in Aldermaston and Burghfield in Berkshire to Coulport on Loch Long, where the warheads are stored and loaded onto the Trident submarines. Unready Scotland is based on a survey of Scottish local authorities on or near known convoy routes, conducted in the autumn of 2016 by the office of Mark Ruskell MSP and the observations and research by Nukewatch and other related campaigns over the years.
