Devonport Dockyard in Plymouth refits, maintains and upgrades the nuclear submarines that carry Trident nuclear missiles, but it is also increasingly becoming the dumping ground for old and out-of-service submarines. Plymouth is being paid for its role in the servicing of Britain’s weapons of mass destruction by becoming the ‘Sellafield of the South West’.

A decade of Trident Ploughshares blockades and disarmament actions have helped build a strong and broad movement against nuclear weapons in Scotland. The Scottish government was elected with a policy of nuclear disarmament. Now it's England’s turn.

Crash space and food available.
