Our vision is a world without weapons of mass destruction.

We demand that Britain abandons all nuclear weapons, nuclear bases and nuclear alliances, immediately and unilaterally, as the first step towards a new foreign policy that has, as its main objective, the worldwide abolition of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, ultimately leading to complete and general global disarmament.

We oppose all activities which make nuclear war more likely, or which hinder progress towards a world without weapons of mass destruction – including the manufacture, stockpiling, testing, use and threatened use of nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.

We believe that Scotland holds the key to dismantling the UK’s entire nuclear programme. If Scotland commits to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and demands that UK nuclear weapons be removed from Scottish territory, there will be nowhere left to go – no other site where the UK could realistically house its weapons of mass destruction.

International support for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons shows that a world without nuclear weapons is possible. The international consensus against nuclear weapons is strengthening, while nuclear-armed states are increasingly isolated as they try to defend their indefensible nuclear regimes. 

We believe that Scotland can best take advantage of the opportunities presented by the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and can most quickly disarm the UK’s nuclear arsenal in Scotland, as an independent nation with full autonomy over its international commitments, its territory and its political priorities. However, we are not party political, and we welcome supporters of all political backgrounds who are united in opposition to nuclear weapons.

We call on the Scottish Government to commit to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, to outlaw nuclear weapons and to disarm the UK’s nuclear arsenal in Scotland by the most direct route possible.
