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.
