From Faslane to Four Mile: The Nuclear Crisis is the latest project from the Glasgow Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. We are building an interactive, online event, bringing together campaigners from the UK with campaigners from Australia, to discuss the global historic and continued legacy of the nuclear industries, in light of the current climate crisis. We hope to run the event as part of the COP Coalition’s September online Global Gathering event.
We believe it is vital to recognise the contributions of the nuclear industries to the current ecological crises, as well as their humanitarian impact. We aim to bring together individuals working on issues across the nuclear spectrum to share their insights through talks, Q+As and workshop activities, so that our participants might gain a higher understanding of the relationships between nuclear weapons tests, nuclear energy, uranium mining, colonialism and indigenous exploitation, and environmental contamination.

Here's where you come in! We are seeking £500 to cover the costs of:
- Use of professional automatic and live subtitling software (eg StageTexts) so that our event can be accessible
- Use of professional film-making software, so that we can include a short film as part of the event
- Travel expenses for our film-maker
- Speakers fees (likely in the form of a charitable donation to the speaker's organisation)
Any funds that remain following the event will be held by Glasgow CND for future projects.
Our focus this year at Glasgow CND has been to build bridges with communities across the world who have been affected by the historic and continued testing and production of nuclear weapons. We hope that our September event will continue our contributions to international dialogue surrounding the threats posed by the nuclear industries, as well as building bridges with affected communities. Our event for Scottish CND honouring Marshall Islands Remembrance Day on March 01 brought together parliamentarians, poets, faith leaders and activists from across Scotland and the Marshall Islands for an exchange of solidarity and hope. The event is available to watch here:
