Join Tariq Ali, Brian Eno and many more a week before the Stop Trident demo for a rally and mobilising meeting to hear the arguments against replacement and to help mobilise thousands on the day of the demo.
This year Parliament will decide on whether or not to replace Trident, the UK's nuclear weapons system.
Polls show that a majority of the public oppose Trident replacement. It's obscene that over £100 billion might be spent on a cold war relic whilst huge cuts are made to vital public services.
On the 27 February, thousands will take to the streets of London to protest against government plans.
With thanks to the Quakers for hosting this rally.
