Exeter Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
welcome to the online shop for Exeter CND
Trident is Britain's nuclear weapons system. It's made up of four nuclear-powered and nuclear-armed submarines. Each sub carrying up to 40 nuclear warheads on board, and each of those warheads is 8 times more powerful than the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima
Not only are nuclear weapons immoral and illegal under international law as they kill indiscriminately, they are strategically irrelevant in the face of the actual threats we face today. The Government's National Security Strategy identifies international terrorism, cyber-attacks and natural hazards as greater threats than nuclear war.
The government is in favour of replacing Trident at a cost of at least £205 billion. This money would be enough to improve the NHS by building 120 state of the art hospitals and employing 150,000 new nurses, build 3 million affordable homes, install solar panels in every home in the UK or pay the tuition fees for 8 million students.
