Trident Ploughshares Nuclear Disarmament Camp
Coulport (& Faslane) in Beautiful Scotland
July 8th – 16th 2017 

Now it’s Time to Resist!

This is an important time to take action of all kinds for nuclear disarmament.
In July the United Nations is set to agree a Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty. The UK – and the other states that possess nuclear weapons – oppose it. But most countries support it. And that means it will become law.
Everyone who opposes Trident and its grim replacement is invited to join us for ten days of camping, plotting and taking direct action to disrupt this monstrosity.

All welcome for as little or as long as you can stay. Bring friends, make friends, and enjoy camping in an ancient oak woodland adjacent to MOD Coulport, where the nuclear weapons are stored in sinister bunkers deep inside the hillside by one of the most beautiful lochs in Scotland.
Save the date. Spread the word.
