Yorkshire Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament works for a world free from nuclear weapons. We oppose the damage caused by these weapons of mass destruction through their development, testing and potential use. The £billions spent on nuclear weapons could be far better used on tackling hunger and poverty and investing in the things people really need, such as decent public services.
As one of the small number of nuclear weapons states in the world, we believe the UK should take a lead by cancelling the planned £100 billion replacement of the Trident system and scrap our nuclear weapons. We also campaign for a Nuclear Weapons Convention – a detailed plan for global nuclear disarmament. We oppose nuclear power as a dangerous, dirty and expensive fuel, which is not the answer to climate change.
