"Why I have to be an Activist" by Brian Quail 
Brian is a veteran peace activist. He is well known for stopping nuclear convoys and has been arrested many times - he is recently out of Low Moss Prison. His stirring speeches explain how it is not his actions that are illegal and immoral, but the actions of those who send these deadly weapons of mass destruction though our streets. 

"The Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons Treaty 2017" by Bill Kidd 
Bill is MSP for Glasgow Anniesland and Chief Whip in the Scottish Government. He is also Co-President of the Global Council of PNND (Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament) and has addressed several meetings of the UN on the abolition of nuclear weapons.

"The New Arms Race" by George Kerevan
George was SNP MP for East Lothian until the snap election of 2017 and was a member of the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee. He has held academic posts, including Senior Lecturer in Economics, he has been associate editor of The Scotsman, and is now a journalist with The Sunday Herald and The National. His articles include ‘A brief history of planet Earth's near misses with a nuclear holocaust’.

There will be time for questions and debate after the talks and you are invited to join us in the CCA bar at the end of the formal part of the day.
