Anti-nuclear protesters to gather in Colne

EAST LANCASHIRE Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament will hold its AGM in Colne on Friday.

The non-violent protest group, which calls for nuclear weapons to be banned, meets at the Colne Open Door Centre in Great George Street from 7pm.

Secretary Joan West said the group’s priority continues to be the scrapping of the Trident programme.

She said: “Millions are being unnecessarily spent on these weapons of mass destruction at a time when austerity measures are biting hard.”

Also on the agenda will be details of the group’s programme of events for 2013, including the commemoration of the Chernobyl disaster in April, and setting up an information stall at the May Day Rally in Burnley.

A lot of sheeple don't understand about nuclear technology either as a power source or as a weapon. It can be quite a challenge helping some to understand just how damaging nuclear technology can be to our already messed up planet.

Robert Oppenheimer: If atomic bombs are to be added as new weapons to the arsenals of a warring world, or to the arsenals of the nations preparing for war, then the time will come when mankind will curse the names of Los Alamos and Hiroshima. The people of this world must unite or they will perish.

Remember that the whole of life form on earth is dead.
Within 90 minutes from the launch of the first thermo nuclear war head..

From the look of some of the locals, it seems likely that they've been testing nukes in Colne for a while now.

The ownership and threat of nuclear warheads has also prevented may wars from even occurring though. China and Russia can now never invade the west helping save hundreds of thousands of lives and a war that would have lasted many years. The days of the great wars are now over for developed countries. The threat now comes from terrorism and the hope that nuclear warheads can be kept from their hands.
