Aldermaston 2008

The government is proposing to spend £25 billion upfront and £79 billion over the next 20 years on new nuclear weapons. The buildings to test these weapons are almost completed at Aldermaston nuclear weapons factory about 30 miles south of Oxford.CND is working for a really big demonstration at Aldermaston this coming Easter Monday 24th. March.

A 75 seat double-decker bus has already been hired and we are aiming to fill this before hiring further transport. Tickets are already on sale and are being snapped up. The (return! - we expect to come back) fare is £6 with £4 (usual concessions). There are 3 tickets outlets:
1) Fairtrade shop, basement, St Michael's at the North Gate, Cornmarket
2) Uhuru Wholefoods, 58 Cowley Road
3) The Inner Book Shop, Magdalen Road
Alternatively, you can post a cheque (made out to Oxford CND) with a sae to 38 Yarnells Hill, Botley, Oxford OX2 9BE.
