Message to everyone working at Faslane Naval Base
Thursday, 28 June 2012

We believe that everyone should have a right to live in peace and dignity. We understand that, for most people, work has a vital role to play in earning a living and also has a social function in helping to provide goods and services that people need and want.
We also agree with the simple and truthful slogan being adopted currently at Faslane Peace Camp - “There will be no jobs if the bomb goes off”.
Nuclear weapons are illegal and immoral. If they were ever to be used, innocent men, women and children would suffer for generations to come. Nuclear weapons should have no place in any civilised society.
We believe that billions of pounds are simply being wasted on nuclear weapons. Also, the skills and talents of the workforce at Faslane Naval Base should instead be used for socially useful ends.
We will, therefore, continue to campaign, alongside those at Faslane Peace Camp, for a better, more peaceful future for everyone.
