Help us campaign against the return of US nuclear weapons to the UK with a massive nationwide billboard campaign.

by Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) in United Kingdom

US nuclear weapons are returning to the UK for the first time in decades. These weapons do NOT make us safe - they make us a target. Donate to CND and help us launch a major new billboard campaign to stop nukes for good.

US nuclear weapons are RETURNING to the UK for the first time since 2008. The media have barely covered it, and the government has refused to come clean to MPs about what is going on. The Ministry of Defence initially told Parliamentary CND that they would neither 'confirm nor deny' the reports.

However, we  do know that the US Department of Defense has added the UK to a list of NATO nuclear weapons storage locations in Europe being upgraded under a multi-billion-dollar infrastructure programme. It is believed that US nuclear weapons will be coming to RAF Lakenheath, a base in Suffolk run by the US.

With tensions in the Ukraine escalating, the threat of nuclear war is at the highest it has been for decades. The return of US nukes to UK soil will only make this worse.

The war in Ukraine is already in very real danger of escalating into an all-out conflict between NATO states and Russia.

The return of US nuclear weapons to the UK ratchets up global tensions, makes any peaceful resolutions to the conflict more difficult to negotiate, and will only make us a target in the event of a nuclear war.

Help us expose what's happening with a massive-scale billboard campaign across the country - the public MUST know.

In the coming weeks and months we want to place a series of huge, eye-catching billboards in towns and cities up and down the country - including in Birmingham and Liverpool for the Conservative and Labour Party conferences in the autumn. 

We need to get the message about the return of US nukes out as widely as possible. In the face of government dissembling and media apathy, it's up to us to spread the word - but we can only do it with your help.

With huge public opposition, led by CND, we stopped these nukes before - and with your help we can stop them again.

It was massive popular protest and public opposition to the presence of US nukes in the UK that saw them removed in the first place; from cruise missiles in the 1980s to the removal of the last US nukes from Lakenheath in 2008. Without huge public opposition, led by CND, they would still be here today. We must take the lead once again.

But to do this, we need to raise at least £18.500 to place all the adverts we need. And we can't do this without your help. The more money we can raise, the more billboards we can get in locations all over the country, and the more people will be made aware of these incredibly dangerous and destabilising plans.

You can help stop these terrible weapons from making us a target. Donate now and let's make the country a safer place.
