A nuclear ban is coming

Next Tuesday, 7 February, they’ll be a local event on a theme of international importance when Hastings Against War host a talk and discussion on the theme of nuclear weapons.

Nuclear fall-out and remembrance

Earlier this month, MPs voted for Trident renewal by 472 votes to 117 – a majority of 355, including nearly all Conservative Party members and half of Labour, even though Jeremy Corbyn, a lifelong unilateralist, and many Scottish National Party MPs opposed this decision, writes Zelly Restorick. In remembrance of the use of nuclear weaponry and its consequences, Hastings Against War will hold a service for those who lost their lives in the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, with a ceremony at the boating lake in Alexandra Park on Tuesday August 9th.
