Saturday 9th December we will be at the ‘No safe hands for unsafe weapons’ demo, hosted by the CND and Medacat, and you should join us!! This will take place outside of the MoD, in London, to coincide with the Nobel Ceremony weekend.

The day’s itinerary will be as follows: Meet at 10.30 am outside the Main entrance at the Ministry of Defence in warm clothes. 11 am Ceremony with mock up of Nobel peace Prize 11.20-11.35 Speeches from Bruce Kent, Sheila Triggs and others 11.35 Letter is handed in 11.45-12.30 Die in – pretend to be dead – there will be others acting as doctors and nurses being dead too – showing impact of nuclear bomb.
