Calder Valley CND for Peace and Justice

What have we been up to?

We organised an Emergency Protest on the Trident Vote in July and held a Hiroshima Day commemoration – Saturday 6th August, in Hebden Bridge.

On 14th November there will be a talk by Andrea Needham at the Bookcase in Hebden Bridge at 7pm. Twenty years ago, on 29 January 1996, a small group of women broke into a British Aerospace factory in Lancashire and disarmed a Hawk warplane bound for use in Indonesia’s then-ongoing genocide in East Timor. Charged with committing over £2m of damage, they spent six months in prison awaiting trial before being acquitted of all charges by a jury – a landmark verdict that generated national media coverage and inspired countless activists across the globe.

Join us to hear one of the women, Andrea Needham, talk about the action and its lessons for today, and read from her recently published memoir ‘The Hammer Blow’. See http://tinyurl.com/hh8hwn3 for a taster of Andrea’s book.

For details of our next meeting, see opposite. All welcome.

 

Join us to remember those who died when the nuclear bombs were dropped, those who still suffer from radiation poisoning and say NEVER AGAIN!
