Standing outside Faslane nuclear weapons base

In late November / early December Conscience hosted the 15th International Conference on War Tax Resistance and Peace Tax Campaigns in Edinburgh.  On the last day of the conference a group of us went to the nuclear weapons base at Faslane.  The people in the group were from five countries.  That evening Karen Robinson, Conscience Campaign Worker, wrote:

“Still feeling quiet, and part of me frightened and frozen inside.  Went to HM Naval Base Clyde today, where submarines carrying the UK’s Trident nuclear weapons are based.  Almost impossible to take in the horror, alongside the beauty.”

In her recent blog, Karen describes her personal reaction to seeing, and standing outside, the base:
