Calling all groups, individuals, families to come and join us for the
final day in the June 2016 month of direct action at AWE Burghfield.
On Thursday 30th June people who have taken part in this June month of
protest will return to the perimeter fence of AWE Burghfield. We need
people to join us in a Grand Finale to a very successful month of
action. Together we will stretch a continuous Red Line around the site.
Meet at the junction of Reading Road & The Mearings RG30 3RJ on
the west of AWE Burghfield or near the Construction Gate on Burnthouse
Lane. Or just drop in at any time and walk round the perimeter.
Wear red, bring strips of red fabric or anything else red that can join
the line. Bring strips of fabric with curtain hooks on it to hang on the
fence – being narrow weldmesh the fence can be awkward to tie things to.
We would like you to attach a large red cross to each fence panel, but
whatever goes on the fence should be easily removed if you want to be
sure of avoiding charges by the MoD police - see our ‘Legal Advice re
Byelaws & putting things on the fence at AWE Burghfield’ document:
Bring banners, flags, & music and your strips of red material to make Xs
for the fence. We have red paper overalls for you at the 2 meeting
places if you have nothing red to wear!
The day will end when it ends but is probably a good time for
most of us.
Burghfield parking can be difficult close to the site. But we have
advice and more practical information at
Maps & pics, here:
Loos – behind a bush – motorway services or camping loo (if you bring
one). Bring food & drink, sun or rain protection.
This month of protests has seen the construction site entrance to this
nuclear weapons factory fairly continuously blockaded round the clock
and numerous colourful demonstrations simultaneously taking place at The
Mearings entrance to the site. All construction traffic to AWE
Burghfield has been blocked since the 1st week in June.
For pictures and films of the action so far see
AWE Burghfield is the final assembly plant for the nuclear warheads that
end up on the Trident submarine fleet based at Faslane in Scotland. The
warheads on just one submarine could kill up to 50 million people. This
is horrific. People's resistance is necessary.
