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.”

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
