Online :

 

Suggested by Eric : Closure of Faslane. Note - SNP CND have just had 3 widely advertised online meetings about their report ‘Nuclear Guantanamo on The Clyde’ and proposed motion to SNP conference 2020. The motion is :

 

Baseline timescale for removing nuclear weapons from Scotland

 

Conference notes the public endorsement of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons by the First Minister of Scotland and leader of the SNP, and support for the ratification of the Treaty by an independent Scotland.

 

Consequently, and in line with the provisions of the TPNW, Conference pledges that a Trident removal timescale of 3 years from a Yes vote on Scottish Independence will be included in the SNP manifesto for the election to the first sovereign Scottish Parliament.

 

Others :

 

Glasgow CND could form alliances with other organisations in Glasgow with interests relevant to our constitution. See list of potential organisations attached.
