Just say No to NATO in Scotland

(A message from Angie Zelter of Trident Plougshares, on behalf of the No to NATO in Scotland campaign)

In response to the SNP leadership proposing a change in their long held opposition to NATO membership at their party conference in October TP in Scotland held an emergency meeting a fortnight ago. Last Wednesday we facilitated the launch of a No To NATO in Scotland Coalition. At a well attended meeting we agreed a campaign plan including the gist of a unified statement and we now have a live website where people can sign up to say that they support this.

Angie Zelter is the "O' in "NO"
Please spread this far and wide. We need both people from Scotland and people from all around the world so that the SNP grassroots can see that changing to a policy of NATO membership is not as popular as their leaders (and The Scotsman newspaper!) are constantly telling them.

Its a good opportunity to raise awareness about what NATO does and that its a nuclear alliance as this is a very hot issue at the moment.
