SNP conference condemns Trident

The Spring Conference of the Scottish National Party unanimously passed a motion against nuclear weapons.

It said: "Conference condemns Westminster’s plan to spend £100 billion on renewal of the Trident nuclear weapons system. Conference believes this is immoral, outdated and a grotesque waste of taxpayers’ money at a time when people in Scotland are dealing with cuts and austerity imposed by the Westminster government. Conference notes that Scottish Labour MPs voted for the renewal of Trident a week after they voted with the Tories for further cuts and more austerity. Conference believes that only a strong group of SNP MPs at Westminster will oppose a new generation of nuclear weapons being dumped on the Clyde."

There were powerful speeches from a range of speakers including Bill Kidd, Mike Weir and Tasmina Sheikh. Video.  SNP CND had a popular stall at the conference.
