We are a very  ‘young’  group, formed in 2014 and gained Branch status at the Annual General Meeting on 14 March 2015.  We were quite active through 2014:  organising two vigils, 15th  May for the International Conscientious Objector’s Day and 4th August for the Commemoration of the Women’s Rally at Kingsway Hall London 1914.  We also attended the 101st Anniversary of the Suffragist Walk from Lands End.  Although far from Scotland, we currently support the protests and blockades of the Faslane nuclear weapons base.
