Compass to march against Trident

On 27th February, Compass will be marching as part of the biggest mobilisation against nuclear weapons in a generation.

We hope you will join us at 12.00 at Marble Arch for our march to Trafalgar Square, where for the first time political leaders will form a progressive alliance to call on Westminster not to replace Trident nuclear warheads.

Join Compass and leaders from four progressive political parties to say no to the replacement of Trident:

  • Jeremy Corbyn, Labour leader
  • Nicola Sturgeon, SNP, First Minister of Scotland
  • Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP
  • Leanne Wood, Plaid Cymru, leader

Our argument is clear: Trident does not give us security from any of the real threats hitting our headlines today. It is not an effective deterrent against terrorism, cyber-attacks or against the biggest threat of all - climate change. Watch this video for more info. 

Simply having nuclear weapons on our territory – being a member of the elitist nuclear club - makes us a target for the disaffected. We should be with the 107 nations currently signed up to the ‘humanitarian pledge’ and working to make nuclear weapons illegal. 

It’s time to forge a more level playing field and create the strong transnational networks that give us the long-term security we need.

Not replacing Trident would give our economy a £100 billion windfall over the next ten years. That money spent on conflict prevention and resolution and investing in society, economy and infrastructure gives us the internal security we need to get back to being a thriving country.

However you look at it, there is no security in Trident – It's time to move on!
