Five Activists Walk Straight into Faslane Nuclear Weapons Base

FASLANE, Scotland - This afternoon five peace activists from nonviolent direct
action group Trident Ploughshares walked unchallenged straight into Faslane naval base in Scotland,
the home of Britain ’s
nuclear-armed Trident submarines, making a mockery of security for Britain’s
“strategic nuclear deterrent.” The five are currently still inside the base.

The activists, one man and four women, released the
following statement:

“We invite others to follow us through this gate to
restore humanitarian law.”
