Exposed! The secret US/UK nuclear weapons agreement – a CND and Declassified UK webinar

15 February @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

CND and Declassified UK invite you to join our upcoming webinar exploring the murky treaty linking the US and Britain’s nuclear weapons. In place since 1958, the Mutual Defence Agreement (MDA) oversees the transfer of nuclear technologies that enable Britain to maintain and modernise its nuclear arsenal.

Renewed every ten years, the MDA is up for extension in 2024 – but won’t come with any parliamentary oversight or scrutiny! With global tensions at their highest in decades and nuclear powers upgrading their nuclear arsenals, it’s important that a spotlight is shone on this secretive relationship.

This webinar will explore the origins of the MDA, examine why Britain needs to end its nuclear relationship with the US, and discuss what we need to do internationally to push for global nuclear disarmament.

With guest speakers: Richard Norton-Taylor (Declassified UK and former longtime security and defence editor of The Guardian); Baroness Natalie Bennett (Green Party); and Mark Curtis (Declassified UK). Chaired by Kate Hudson from CND.
