Stop Trident – news and actions

If war...Stop Trident march and rally. On 27 February hundreds of people of faith, including Pax Christi members from around the country, London and Glasgow Catholic Workers, Justice and and Peace Scotland,  gathered for prayer at Hinde Street Methodist Church before setting off on the Stop Trident march to Trafalgar Square.

Now we must all continue to pray, write letters and speak out against plans to renew and replace Trident.  These resources may be of some help  to you in writing to your Bishop or faith leader, your  MP, and local press.
