An event bringing together all the anti-nuclear organisations in Scotland with the intention of holding the biggest ever demonstration ever seen outside the gates of Faslane. On arrival at Faslane coaches will drop off at the South Gate at about 11.45am.
The buses will drop off near the Peace Camp at the South end of the base , from there we will make our way to the North Gate. We hope to see a huge, colourful, mass of people making as much noise as they possibly can. As we pass north up the A814 we will have the opportunity to attach our banners, posters, signs etc along the perimeter fence. (This can be difficult, bring thin wire and cable ties, but avoid bringing anything that could be used to cut the fence).
People who don’t want to take part in the noisy demonstration or who are unable to walk the length of the fence can go directly to the North Gate where will be some singing.
Once at the North Gate, we will join with all the other groups for a variety of different events. Individuals will have an opportunity to make short statements (approx 1 min) over an amplifier outlining why they are there. There will be hot drinks available at the North gate and you are encouraged to bring sandwiches and to join together to meet, eat and talk.
Maps of the base will be supplied with a description of what goes on where within the complex. If you have never been to Faslane before, this is your opportunity to come and see it for yourself and to think about how its purpose is to daily prepare for devastating nuclear warfare.
