Hiroshima Commemoration Paisley

At a ceremony to commemorate the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima an SNP Councillor called on Douglas Alexander, the local MP, to take a stand against the renewal of Trident.

AN SNP councillor has called on Paisley and Renfrewshire South MP, Douglas Alexander, to take a stand against the renewal of new nuclear weapons on the Clyde.

 

Councillor Audrey Doig, who is Renfrewshire Council’s representative to the Convention of Nuclear Free Local Authorities, spoke to Renfrewshire CND in Paisley this week to commemorate the 62nd anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.

 

Cllr Doig said: “We are here tonight to place lighted lanterns on the Cart to remember the victims of the first nuclear bomb.

 

The SNP have always been opposed to the development and use of nuclear weapons as they are immoral, illegal, and expensive.

 

"The lessons from Hiroshima are that local people in Paisley and Renfrewshire of all political persuasions need to unite to stop a new breed of Trident which will be on our doorstep”.
