  • Review preparations for dealing with a nuclear convoy accident
    Nuclear warheads are regularly transported in convoys on public roads to and from the atomic weapon factories at Aldermaston and Burghfield, and RNAD Coulport on Loch Long, where the weapons are stored and loaded onto Trident submarines. A nuclear warhead contains radioactive material AND high explosive and this poses serious questions about public safety. Nukewatch has published a report ‘Unready Scotland’ based on the very unsatisfactory answers to a survey of all the Local Authorities that these convoys pass through. The Civil Contingencies Act requires Category 1 Responders (including Local Authorities) to conduct a risk assessment of potential threats and to keep the public informed. It also makes the Scottish Government responsible for making sure that Local Authorities comply. If there was a serious accident the Ministry of Defence would look after the nuclear weapon. Local Councils, Emergency Services and the Health Service would be responsible for potentially contaminated casualties, evacuating people nearby and advising many more to stay indoors. Nukewatch’s survey finds that many councils don’t know anything about these convoys. We want the Scottish Government to openly review how prepared the civil authorities are and inform the public about their findings. Then the people of Scotland can decide whether this transport poses an unacceptable risk.

  • Stop Trump's state visit to the UK
    The UK must show itself to be above Trump's racism. To retain the invitation legitimises him and diminishes our country in the eyes of the world. We should be taking a principled stand against him, not welcoming him with a fanfare. Furthermore it is an embarrassment to HM The Queen, who lived through the second world war, to ask her to stand side by side with a President who's soft on Nazis and White Supremacists. Donald Trump regularly undermines values that our country holds dear - gender and racial equality, human rights, religious freedom, freedom of the press and preservation of the environment amongst others. He should not be given the prestige of a full state visit.

  • Improve the conditions for EU-bound migrants in Libyan 'detention' centres
    Each night, hundreds of migrants board smuggler owned rubber dinghies to take the perilous journey from Libya to Europe. These migrants either: a) Drown in the Mediterranean sea, as the dinghies are not built to support the long, dangerous journey, packed to the brim with migrants. b) Arrive in Italy where they not currently permitted to be. c) Are caught by Libyan coast guards who transport them back to Libya to be put in 'detention' centres. These detention centres are awful places, in which many human rights are broken. Migrants eat, sleep and live on crowded floors where they do not have enough space to move around. UK prisons have far better living conditions than those in Libyan 'Detention Centres', yet these migrants are innocent people. One lady interviewed by Ross Kemp, in his Extreme World series said that she received no hospital care when giving birth and was instead left to give birth in the toilet. The migrants in these centres are often fleeing war torn countries and are now living in conditions worse than they have left. They have no contact with the outside world, so they are left to live out their days in these awful places. Article 5 of the Human Rights Act, Right to liberty and security, is clearly being broken. From the following quote: "Given its role in the conflict and subsequent destabilisation in Libya, the UK has a particular responsibility in relation to migrants and refugees, an issue which has been exacerbated by the collapse of the Libyan state. " (Paragraph 105 of https://publications.parliament.uk/…/cms…/cmfaff/119/119.pdf) It is clear that the UK government agrees with its own responsibility to help these migrants. But what an earth is being done about it? Ideally, I think one the solutions should be: For all countries that are unwilling to accept these migrants to contribute to the creation of 'peace centres'. 'Peace centres' would strive to provide a bed for each migrant within Libya whilst being sustainable in ensuring that migrants can get back to their home countries. Sustainability would be achieved by having an on site lawyers office who will fight to get these people back to their home countries and by allowing residents to work within the centre, by doing chores to support the upkeep of the centre, all of which would be paid work. There will also be education to prevent these people from getting on boats again as it is a risk to their money, safety and well being. By signing this petition, we can encourage the UK government and other EU countries to do more to improve conditions within Libyan migrant detention centres.

    On the 7th of July 2017 at the UN Headquarters in New York a global treaty banning nuclear weapons was adopted by a clear majority of UN member states. 122 member states voted for it, and only one voted against. The treaty will be open for signature by governments on September 20th 2017 and when it has been signed and ratified by fifty of the member states, those that join the treaty will be bound to prohibit any possession, use or threat with nuclear weapons. They will also be bound by law not to assist any other state in these activities, including states that do not sign up. The UK has said that it will not sign. Please request that your MSP and/or First Minister Nicola Sturgeon speak out firmly and publicly to the UK Government before the 20th September, and declare that Trident is even less welcome in Scotland when its legitimacy is challenged across the world. When you write to your MP or MSP, here is an easy ask. Ahead of the negotiations for the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) enlisted support from 856 parliamentarians in 42 countries. Now ICAN is seeking parliamentarians' support the new Parliamentary Pledge – a commitment to work for the signature and ratification of the treaty. This is an ideal tool for us in Scotland to exerting pressure on the UK government who failed to participate in the negotiations and to highlight the wall to wall opposition to nuclear weapons in Scotland . Parliamentarians at Westminster or Holyrood can add their names to the Pledge by emailing [email protected] or using this link. ICAN's website will let the world see what Scottish Parliamentarians think. The form is here http://www.icanw.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Parliamentary-Pledge.pdf?mc_cid=3b0ad99bfc&mc_eid=3b378b7aa3 It's just over a month until the treaty opens for signature. Let's work hard to have a large number of parliamentarians on board by then. http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/news/Blogs/makingwaves/nuclear-weapons-banned-historic-UN-treaty/blog/59807/?utm_campaign=Twitter&utm_source=Link&utm_medium=US http://www.cnduk.org/images/stories/Trident_and_International_Law.pdf

  • Kurdistan Independence
    The Kurds are indigenous nation who historically have always inhabited their own land, Kurdistan, Land of the Kurds, which stretches over the mountainous chain of the Zagros region and its plains, with a population of more than 40 million, who have retained their societal culture and have preserved their own languages and culture, are perhaps the only nation on earth who are still stateless. After the demise of the Ottoman Empire, the Kurds were divided among four newly invented states in the Middle East, Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Syria, forming entirely a different ethnic minority in each state while the Kurds were made to lose their own identity in the newly created arbitrary countries, these were compromising homogeneous national groups, their by denying the existence of other national groups within their own borders. The signing of the armistice agreement on 30 October 1918 which signaled the demise of the Ottomans has paved the way for the Treaty of Sevres on 10 August 1920, effectively allowing the allied powers in dividing the Ottoman Empire to implement the Sykes –Picot agreement of 1916 which created artificial countries in the Middle East by drawing a line in the sand and instead of delivering the Kurds from the Ottoman Empire, it marked the beginning of their oppression throughout the Middle EastSubsequent events and the new upheaval in the Middle East, including the falls of successive dictatorial regimes, the rise of radicalism and sectarianism, have added to the instability of the region, created new realities on the ground and have shown that old artificial borders are bound to fail. Our Kurdish leaders as well as the whole of the Kurdish nation have joined in, in demanding to have their own independent Kurdistan. The Kurds are the most freedom loving nations but also the most victimised nation throughout their modern history on this planet, who believe in liberty and democracy, therefore we ask you to support our petition to the British and European Parliaments to lend the Kurds full support in achieving their goals in having an independent state. With our sincere gratitude and regards On and behalf of PNKs Dr Khoshnaf Al-Kadi 2017-07-16, London

  • Release Brian Quail and Angela Zelter
    Protesting pensioners Brian Quail and Angela Zelter have been thrown in jail after refusing to accept a court order banning them from campaigning outside a nuclear arms base. Quail, a 79-year-old retired Latin teacher, is being kept in HMP Low Moss, while 66-year-old Zelter has been remanded in Corton Vale. The two were arrested by police for taking part in a blockade of the nuclear warhead store at Coulport on Loch Long as part of the Trident Ploughshares “week of disruption”. The veteran campaigners and three others were offered bail at Dumbarton Justice of the Peace Court on Wednesday, but only if they agreed to not go “within 100m of the perimeter fence or shoreline of HMS Naval Base Clyde, Faslane”. Quail and Zelter refused to accept those conditions and will be kept behind bars until their court date on August 3. The National
