Description

A gathering will take place at the Concert Hall steps (near the Donald Dewar statue) in Buchanan Street, Glasgow from 12.30 pm on Saturday 6 August to remember the victims of the atomic bomb which destroyed the city of Hiroshima in 1945. This will be an opportunity to highlight the reality of the effect of nuclear weapons following the vote in the House of Commons on 18 July when MPs from the remainder of the UK outvoted the views of Scotland's representatives. 58 of Scotland's 59 MPs voted against the plan, which is to base nuclear weapons on the Clyde for the next 50 years, but the House of Commons as a whole voted  to renew Trident.
