AUKUS: Protest nuclear alliance

11th December 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

CND has joined with the Australian and US peace movements to draw public attention to the new AUKUS military pact between the UK, US and Australia. The deal will give Australia nuclear-powered submarines – the first non-nuclear state to get them. This is a dangerous escalation in the West’s ongoing confrontation with China that risks nuclear proliferation and breaches the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Actions and events will be planned across the country, including in Yorkshire where we will be holding a flash mob photoshoot and information stall in Bradford. Join us at City Park from 12 noon. If you want to organise an action in your town or city then please get in touch with the office on info@yorkshirecnd.org.uk.

Other actions 

  • Ask your MP to sign Early Day Motion 493. You can read the full text here.
  • If you are a member of a trade union branch, please get a motion adopted opposing AUKUS. Model motion here. The 2021 Labour Party conference voted to oppose the deal – with 77% of the trade union vote against AUKUS.
  • Labour CND has produced a model motion for local Labour party branches to adopt in support of the anti-AUKUS campaign. Click here to view.
