*postponed* Demonstration: Stop US nukes coming to Lakenheath!
Saturday 17th September @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
*Postponed due to rail strikes. New date coming soon*
Earlier this year, it came to light that US nuclear weapons may once again be stationed at the military base RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk, England.
In the 1950’s and 60’s, US nuclear weapons at RAF Lakenheath were involved in two serious accidents that could have led to their detonation. If this had come to pass, in the words of one senior US official at the time, it could have led to “a part of Eastern England […] becom[ing] a desert”.
Our friends at Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) have called a second demonstration at RAF Lakenheath on Saturday 17th September from 1 to 3pm, and some Medact members are intending to join.
CND is organising a shuttle bus from Norwich station (email [email protected] to reserve), and coaches from London, Yorkshire (email [email protected]), and other key cities. Email [email protected] for further information.
