Add your name to the Rethink Trident statement.
CND and Compass have brought together a coalition of over 100 leading figures from across British public life to call for next week's Pre Budget Report to halt Trident replacement and re-deploy the resources saved to more socially useful areas. You can read the statement and add your name at rethinktrident.org.uk
Launched earlier today with an article in The Independent, the coalition reconvenes the group first formed in the run-up to the 2007 Commons vote on Trident, which at the time was calling for further public and parliamentary debate.
The fact that an even broader coalition has now come together on the basis of outright opposition to Trident replacement shows how opposition to the plans has toughened.
