Plymouth – Trident Ploughshares Demonstration at Charles Cross Police Station

The Trident Ploughshares Big Blockade day of actions continues as between 30 to 50 peace activists demonstrated their solidarity with the 12 people arrested after peacefully blockading the entrance at Camel’s Head Gate into the Devonport Dockyard.  The twelve are in custody in Charles Cross Police station to protest the continued presence of the Trident Nuclear weapons system at Devonport.  The railings are festooned with the colourful banners that were displayed at the gates blocked this morning including Camel’s Head and Albert Gates. Protestors came from Devonport itself, and as far away as Wales, Scotland & Europe to interrupt the refit of the Trident nuclear submarines at Devonport.
