Scottish CND response to recent Terror attacks

The thoughts of Scottish CND are with the families and friends of those who were victims of the recent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London.


Arthur West chair of Scottish CND said-

‘It is absolutely tragic that we have seen loss of life and serious injury due to these recent terrorist attacks . Scottish CND offer their deepest sympathies and solidarity to those directly affected by these murderous and barbaric incidents.’

Mr West said that Scottish CND accept that there will be a renewed focus on security and policing following the tragedies. However he also said that the issue of who supports and funds terrorist organisations needs to be looked at urgently.

Mr West said, ‘A number of respected sources have in the past few months revealed some disturbing information about the role of states such as Saudi Arabia in supporting terrorist organisations.

Frankly action needs to be taken to damage the economic base of terrorist organisations as well as concentrating on personal and community safety issues.

Sadly the recent incidents have shown up the absolutely uselessness of nuclear weapons in relation to responding to terrorist threats
