CND ready to oppose Trump's return

ANTI-NUCLEAR arms campaigners announced plans today for a protest against US President Donald Trump’s return to Britain for a Nato summit.

Mr Trump will be back in London for the summit in December, with Nato secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg saying that the allies have agreed to meet to discuss security challenges and how the alliance can adapt to “keep people safe.”

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) said it will work with its British and international partners to co-ordinate protests.

General secretary Kate Hudson said: “In the last few days, President Trump began the process of US withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. This has already sparked a ratcheting up of a nuclear arms race.

“The Nato summit will be a crucial opportunity for our movement to oppose Trump’s nuclear warmongering and highlight the dangerous role Nato, as a nuclear alliance, plays in raising international tensions.”

Well over 250,000 people took to the streets in protest last July against Mr Trump’s first official trip to Britain.
