West Midlands Minibus to Lakenheath Demonstration
Sep 17 @ 9:30 am – 6:30 pm

West Midlands CND hopes to organise a minibus/coach to Lakenheath for the 1.00pm protest demanding that the UK Government rejects requests by Washington to host nuclear weapons in Suffolk. This will probably involve leaving Birmingham at about 9.30am and returning at around 6pm and will probably be in co-operation with SCANS (South Cheshire and North Staffordshire CND ). Tickets for those on low income will be subsidised. Contact wmcndoffice2@gmail.com

Lakenheath Protest
Sep 17 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

CND and supporters are returning to Lakenheath for another protest this September! They are demanding that the UK Government rejects any such request by Washington to host these weapons.

Information on speakers and transport options to and from the base will be released in due course. In the mean time, put the date in your diary and contact your local CND group so as to make this demo even bigger than the last! For any initial queries, please email information@cnduk.org

More information on the Lakenheath campaign and how you can help can be found on CND’s website here.
