7. Preparations are under way for the No Nuclear Day at the DSEI arms fair, on Wednesday 4th September in east London. DSEI is one of the world’s biggest arms fairs and the UK the second-biggest arms exporter.As Kate writes on her blog, “behind every pound made in this trade is the reality of death, brutality, mutilation, and destruction of communities. Behind every company or government celebrating a new order or contract, lies the sorrow of bereavement, of childhood curtailed, of peace denied.” Please see the DSEI page on our website for more information, including how you can get involved on the day. In particular, there are contact details for Trident Ploughshares, who are keen to talk to CND groups about the arms fair and what support roles are needed, including legal observers. Both Trident Ploughshares and Yorkshire CND are organising non-violent direct action training, visit our website for up to date information and contact details. ————– 8. Basle Peace Office and others: We’ve written a letter to the new Prime Minister to express our concerns about Britain’s continued possession of nuclear weapons and the lack of action on global abolition.Please add your name.In just under 90 days Basel Peace Office will join others to count out $1 trillion, the nuclear weapons budget for the next 10 years.
And we will highlight actions people can take to ‘Move the Nuclear Weapons Money’ to better purposes.
Join us to help count the money and to demonstrate what we could do if we weren’t wasting this money on nuclear weapons.

Beyond Nuclear International: https://beyondnuclearinternational.orgAn International Forum for a Nuclear-Free World, held in May in Sendai, Japan, has just released a statement calling for a global end to the use of nuclear power. And it noted that nuclear power and nuclear weapons are “two sides of a single coin.” An African American medical doctor, Chip Thomas, lives and works on the Navajo reservation. With the participation of his patients and others in the community, he photographs and records their lives on the sides of buildings. (b) President Trump has his finger on the nuclear button. He could press it and obliterate Afghanistan. But he says he won’t do it. At least for now. Paul Rogers looks at the implications of Trump’s hints at “winnable” nuclear war. Seven young Tunisians call upon their government to sign and ratify the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons because “waiting and doing nothing is the worst of solutions,” they write. ————-
