Westminster Abbey: Nuclear Weapons ‘Celebration’ @ Westminster Abbey
May 3 @ 11:30 am – 2:30 pm

Pax Christi will gather outside Westminster Abbey if the service goes ahead on May 3rd

Anti-nuclear campaigners have condemned plans to host a thanksgiving service for Britain’s nuclear weapons system at Westminster Abbey.

Pax Christi, Christian CND and other campaigners will gather from 1130 close to Westminster Abbey to protest the event. 

Protest location is outside Barclay’s Bank on Victoria Street. Witness begins at 12pm. 

Kate Hudson, CND general secretary, said: “It’s morally repugnant that a service of thanksgiving for Britain’s nuclear weapons system is due to be held at Westminster Abbey. This sends out a terrible message to the world about our country. It says that here in Britain we celebrate weapons – in a place of worship – that can kill millions of people.

Climate Change Lobby @ London
Jun 26 all-day

On June 26th there will be a mass lobby for action on climate change. Climate change is already fuelling armed conflict. As Pope Francis reminds us, ‘I wish to mention another threat to peace which arises from the greedy exploitation of environmental resources.’ Thousands of people will come together to send a message to politicians: End the UK’s contribution to climate change and pass ambitious laws that create a healthier environment for nature and people.  More information here
