left

Glasgow MSP Bill Kidd attended the Preparatory Committee for the 2010 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in Geneva this week to support an international ban on nuclear weapons. 

Hel addressed a meeting of NGOs at the Conference and set out the opposition of Scottish CND and the SNP to the renewal of the Trident.weapons system.

  Bill said  “It is an enormous privilege to have been invited to speak on ScotlandÂ’s behalf against the renewal of nuclear weapons.  For the first time ever Scotland has a Government and a Parliament opposed to nuclear weapons with a clear vision of a Nuclear Free Scotland.  Opposition to the UK GovernmentÂ’s decision to spend a minimum of £25 billion and possibly three times that amount on a new generation of Trident to sit in the Clyde is growing every day".  

The Review Conference in 2010 will determine the future for nuclear non-proliferation.  The actions of the UK in renewing Trident are threatening any opportunity there may be to reduce the number of nuclear weapons, to end the spread of nuclear weapons across the world and to dissuade other governments and countries from entering a new arms race.”
