The National Audit Office forecast that the UK would spend £5.2 billion on its nuclear weapons programme in 2018-2019. It is almost impossible to imagine the horror that would be unleashed if just one of those nuclear weapons were ever used.
£5.2 billion is such a huge amount of money it is difficult to visualise or comprehend. On Saturday 26 October Conscience: Taxes For Peace Not War is organising an action outside the Ministry of Defence in London. We will be physically counting the £5.2 billion, in protest at the UK’s ownership of nuclear weapons and this terrible use of taxpayers’ money. We will be demanding that the money is spent on addressing the climate emergency.
You would be very welcome to join us.
Count the money we spend on nuclear weapons – and divert it to saving our climate
Saturday 26 October
