Protest against Thanksgiving Service at Westminster Abbey for 50 years of at sea nuclear deterrence

Event Date: 3rd May 2019
Location: Westminster Abbey, London

Join us in making our views about this service clear.  A Thanksgiving Service for a weapon system designed to provide immense, indiscriminate, death and destruction is frankly obscene.

What you will see at the protest on 3rd May

  1. Protesters will gather outside the Abbey at 11am on Storey’s Gate in Westminster
  2. A large “No Thanksgiving for Nuclear Weapons” banner and placards
  3. Protesters performing a die-in (from 12am)
  4. Christian CND alternative service with Bruce Kent (from 12am)
  5. CND rally (from 1pm)
