Scottish CND at STUC Congress 2019

Scottish CND have had an active few days at the STUC Congress 2019 which took place from 15th - 17th April 2019.

 

Arthur West, chair of Scottish CND said:

"We ran a very successful stall at the Congress and were able to get a considerable number of leaflets out to delegates and other visitors to the event. There was also considerable interest shown in the various campaigns currently being organised by Scottish CND. We even had a visit at the stall from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon who was one of the speakers at the Congress."

Scottish CND were also delighted that a resolution was passed at the conference reaffirming STUC support for a fully funded Scottish Defence Diversification Agency. 

Last but not least we also ran a very successful fringe meeting on the last day of Congress - which looked at the topic of Developing Sustainable and Socially Useful Jobs in Today's Economy. This meeting had two first class speakers in Pete Roche - policy advisor to the Nuclear Free Local Authorities and Dr Brian Parkin from the Scot.3E network which works on environmental energy and environmental issues. We were also please that a range of delegates attended the meeting.
