171 Arrests as Faslane Protest Ends

Posted by terres on October 4, 2007

Police arrested 171 people at a protest marking the end of a year of blockades against nuclear submarines at the Faslane naval base on the Clyde.

About 500 demonstrators took part in the final event of the protest at the home of the UK’s Trident missiles. Many of them started blockading the main entrance by gluing themselves to the Tarmac outside and chaining themselves together and to the fence.

The protesters were marking the end of Faslane 365, a year-long campaign against the hosting of the Trident fleet in Scotland.

[Note: Not all of these good folks are necessarily antiwar, they just don’t like the nuke subs!- FEWW]
