Scottish CND and other organisations within the Peace Movement are encouraging groups and individuals to organise events to mark the tragic nuclear bombings of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima on August 6th 1945 and Nagasaki on August 9th 1945.
Be really good if local CND groups could let me know of any events you are planning on these anniversaries. We could then publicise them on our website and circulate information to out members and other organisations within the Peace Movement.
Look forward to your response.
Chair of Scottish CND

There are two key issues where Scotland’s voice is being ignored. One is EU membership and the other is Trident. Brexit has triggered the initial steps towards a second independence referendum. The prospect of Westminster renewing Trident, in the teeth of Scottish opposition, could push support for Yes2 well over the line.

If you are driving on the motorway and see a red X above your lane, then you must move to the side. If there are red Xs on all three lanes then you must leave the motorway. But not if you have a nuclear bomb in the back of your truck - when, it would appear, normal safety rules don't apply.
At 11.55 pm on Wednesday 18 May, a 20-vehicle convoy transporting Trident nuclear bombs to Coulport, drove under three red Xs at junction 2 on the M74 at Dalmarnock in Glasgow. The blue lights of police vehicles at the back of the convoy are just visible in the photograph. The vehicles continued along a section of motorway which was closed to all other traffic. The convoy did the same a few miles later at junction 24 on the M8 in Govan, where it drove on a second closed part of the motorway network.

It would be really good if Scottish CND members and supporters could raise trident and related issues with candidates either by writing or e mail. Alternatively there may be opportunities for our members and supporters to raise questions with candidates at hustings meetings.

Don't cross now - there's a nuclear train coming
Scottish CND today condemned the transport of highly radioactive nuclear waste through one of the most dangerous level crossings in Scotland. According to the ABC Railway Guide, the crossing at Stevenston in Ayrshire has a Collective Risk Rating of 3 (Very High). A busy road crosses the railway track immediately beside Stevenson railway station.
