Event Date: 21st May 2022
Location: 1pm outside RAF Lakenheath, Brandon Road, Suffolk, IP27 9BU
National demonstration: Saturday, May 21st – assemble at .
Hello everyone. I’m sure many of you have already heard the worrying reports that US nuclear weapons look set to be coming to the UK. It’s believed that the location in question is the US Air Force base at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk.
110 nuclear bombs were stored at RAF Lakenheath until they were removed in 2008 following persistent popular protest, with which I’m sure many of you were involved. It remains unclear if these free-fall B61 gravity bombs have already returned to Britain, but their reintroduction must be opposed!
CND is calling on all our supporters to mobilise for a national demonstration at RAF Lakenheath to say no to US nukes!
Please consider arranging a coach or a minibus to bring local supporters along. CND will contribute £200 towards a coach organised by any of our nations, regions, groups or specialist sections; and £100 towards a minibus.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you will be arranging transport, so that we can advertise.
More information coming soon, but please let me know if you have any queries in the meantime.
Stop Nukes Coming to Lakenheath – 21st May
It has been revealed that Britain is to become the sixth country in Europe to host US nuclear weapons. The expected location: RAF Lakenheath, a US Air Force base in Suffolk – 70 miles from London.
Creating the conditions for siting American nuclear weapons in Britain puts us on the front line of a nuclear war. It is tantamount to painting a target on the back of everyone in this country.
We’re joining the CND protest at RAF Lakenheath on Sat 21 May. Transport is being organised from across the country. If you’d like to join the protest click the button below.
