Action AWE - Atomic Weapons Elimination
Action AWE is a grassroots campaign of nonviolent actions dedicated to halting nuclear weapons production at the Atomic Weapons Establishment bomb factories at Aldermaston and Burghfield.The purpose is for groups and individuals to undertake autonomous actions and events to raise awareness of the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons and exert political pressure for Britain to end the production, replacement and deployment of Trident and join other countries in negotiating a global treaty to ban nuclear weapons.Action AWE will run for two years. Campaign organisers will arrange speakers for groups, facilitators, legal and other advisors, direct action training if required, comprehensive info packs and a website with up to the minute campaign news and resources.Travel, promotion, website, meeting rooms, accomodation, phones, postage & publishing are all expensive. As our government cuts funding for what should be it's most basic commitments, responsibilities and services to the people of this country, we intend to non-violently bring an end to the squandering of billions on illegal and useless weapons which serve no purpose other than keep the share dividends of corporate war profiteers high.We hope to see you at Aldermaston or Burghfield to help us ensure tax-payer money is more properly used by government. If you're unable to join us but are able to help with a donation, large or small please do so. We need all the help we can get!Thank you.Action AWE.
