Anti-nuclear campaigners travelled to Campbeltown
AS THE military dictatorship in North Korea threatens armageddon a group from the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) visited Campbeltown.
CND’s Gavin McGilvray, April May Thomson and Gwen Sinclair travelled from Kilmarnock for MOK Fest.
They were disappointed that they were unable to run a recruitment stand when the Doon the Green event was cancelled but talked to people on the streets about nuclear disarmament.
Ms Sinclair said: ‘We have been going to as many festivals as possible this year to speak to people about the 200 nuclear weapons at Faslane and Coulport, just 35 miles from Scotland’s largest urban population.
‘In addition we have been speaking about the United Nations treaty banning nuclear weapons which was endorsed by 122 countries and approved in New York in July.
‘The United States was totally against the treaty and cited the escalation of North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programme as one reason.
‘The UK did not attend although the government claims to support multilateral disarmament.’
