Don't Bank on the Bomb - Stop Funding the End of the World

 

Our friends at Don't Bank on the Bomb Scotland have created a guide which is a resource for those who want to get involved in the divestment movement in Scotland. The aim of the movement is to persuade Scottish companies and organisations to stop providing financial support in the form of loans and investments to companies who are involved in the production of nuclear weapons, which will in turn pressurise these companies to halt production. Divestment has been shown to work in the case of cluster munitions.

Trident Shambles

The Trident renewal programme is not only politically controversial; it is also in a state of chaos.  Throughout its first nine years this huge and very expensive project has been badly managed. The Ministry of Defence (MOD) have significantly downplayed the true cost and underestimated how long it will take to build nuclear-armed submarines.  Among other things, a serious defect found at the submarine prototype reactor in Dounreay in 2012 has disrupted the Navy’s nuclear plans and staff shortages are compounding the problems of this troubled project.

NATO is the biggest threat to peace

 

Ever wondered who controls NATO and for what purpose, or why the military alliance has been rapidly expanded since the Cold War ended over 20 years ago?  Or what is really going on in Ukraine - is it just the fault of the interfering Russians? And despite its defensive language why has NATO been involved in wars on 3 continents over the past 15 years? Indeed, is it possible to be a NATO member and not get drawn into NATO missions in places like Afghanistan? And what is the link between NATO and the EU?

You can find the answers to these and many other questions in this new report.

Trident and Jobs

The case for a Scottish Defence Diversification Agency

This new report from the STUC and Scottish CND draws attention to the shift in the balance of global power from the uni-polar world  to a multi-polar world making Britain’s nuclear weapons system seem increasingly irrelevant, the lack of a credible ‘target’ or military rationale for Britain’s’ nuclear weapons system seem increasingly irrelevant, the lack of a credible ‘target; or military rationale for Britain’s nuclear weapons system and growing support from the nations and peoples of the world for a global ban on these weapons.

No Place for Trident

The referendum on 18 September is a vote on Scottish independence, but it will have a major impact on nuclear disarmament. It is likely that a Yes vote will result in the removal of Trident from Scotland. This has been clearly stated by the leadership of the SNP. The proposal for a constitutional ban on the deployment of nuclear weapons will be welcomed and should ensure that there is no room for any deal that keeps Trident on the Clyde. 

Relocating Trident would be so difficult that this is not a viable option. As a result, London is likely to decide that Trident should be scrapped, if Scotland becomes independent. So Scots have it within their power to make a major impact on the global problem of nuclear weapons.
