NUCLEAR FREE LOCAL AUTHORITIES

Scottish Councils have for many years played a key role in the Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) movement in the UK. NFLA recommends action that local authorities can take to reduce the hazards from nuclear weapons, nuclear power and nuclear waste. They also provide information on these issues.

The elections of May 2007 transformed local politics across Scotland. There are new opportunities for councils to sign up to NFLA. The Councils who are currently members are: Dundee, Edinburgh, Fife, Glasgow, Midlothian, North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, Shetland, West Dumbartonshire & Western Isles. The Scottish committee includes Labour, SNP, Liberal Democrat and independent councillors. Secretarial support is provided by Glasgow Council.

If your local authority is not currently represented, please contact your local councillor and encourage them to become involved. Further information on the work of NFLA is available at: www.nuclearpolicy.info
A second network of local authorities is “Mayors for Peace”. This was created in response to a call from the major of Hiroshima at the UN in 1982 for cities to join together in promoting the abolition of nuclear weapons. Glasgow, Edinburgh and Shetland are currently the only Scottish members of Mayors for Peace. Please encourage your council to take part. http://2020visioncampaign.org
