Dec. 1 2000 - Come to Bonnie Scotland and see the beautiful mountains, waters and forests of Argyle - and the biggest nuclear arsenal in Europe. Come and see Hell in our hills, and Leviathan lurking in our waters.
Here is Coulport, where 200 nuclear bombs are stockpiled deep underground. And here is Faslane, the base for Trident, Britain's illegal weapon of massdestruction.
And this is where we are going to shut down the base. Our action will be peaceful, non-violent, and open - but the base will be shut down. And you are cordially invited to join us in this liberating event. A right warm welcome awaits all those friends who can come from abroad and help us with the BIG BLOCKADE on February 12th, at Faslane, about 30 miles from Glasgow. Please contact us for more details.

THE BIG BLOCKADE
Faslane on the Clyde, near Glasgow, is where Britain's four Trident nuclear missile submarines are based. Trident is an indiscriminate weapon of mass destruction, poised to kill millions of civilians, polluting the environment with radiation and outlawed by international humanitarian law. We have to do what we can to prevent this crime.
400 people sat outside the gates of Faslane last February. Their peaceful protest closed the base for several hours. With more people we can shut it down for the whole day. Many ordinary people, church leaders and politicians are already signed up for the Big Blockade. We need your help to make it even more effective.
Sitting in the road risks being arrested, but we believe that this non-violent action is justified. We will be upholding international law, our demonstration will be non-violent - we will act in peace for peace.
You can join the sit-down or support it by standing nearby without risking arrest. The Big Blockade Team will put you in touch with your local group. We are asking everyone taking part to go as a member of a group and to prepare for nonviolent direct action. Training and briefing sessions will be held in your area.
