Lockheed Martin Bomb makers, says the sign pointing towards Cunard house, 15 Lower Regent Street. 18 people from Trident Ploughshares and CAAT (Campaign Against the Arms Trade) held banners, leafleted and sang special anti nuclear, peace carols to draw the attention of the public to what is going on in the unmarked building which houses the UK headquarters of the world’s biggest arms manufactures.
The horrible contrast between the season of goodwill and what Lockheed Martin do, creating and trading weapons that cause death destruction and suffering as well as working on new nuclear weapons that threaten the whole of humanity was highlighted by the songs.
A card was delivered to Lockheed Martin with a picture of a Trident nuclear missile saying, “However you wrap it up, it’s still wrong.” And wishing them a happy and peaceful festive season, with peace on Earth and goodwill to all people. Hoping they would enjoy the New Year, disarming Trident and working for a better world.
Messages were handed out asking Lockheed Martin employees to use their skills for peace and work at dismantling trident. The protest on Monday 8th December continued from 4pm until 6pm.
The group also publicised the proposed privatisation of GP records and appointments services and that Lockheed Martin are in the market for the contract.
