reventing the government replacing the Trident nuclear weaponssystem is the greatest challenge that we face in 2006. We do notyet know when that decision will be made – some fear that it hasalready been made behind closed doors – but we know that we have tobuild the broadest possible alliances across society, mobilising publicopinion as extensively as we can, to prevent it becoming a reality. Of course we face many hurdles: John Reid argues, and Tony Blair concurs,that Britain needs to retain its nuclear ‘deterrent’ in spite of the fact that virtually everyone, including Blair, agrees that nuclear weapons are absolutely no use againstthe current security threats that we face. The public and parliamentary debate, which Reid announced in September, will notinclude the option of non-replacement, if the government has its way. That is our task – toget non-replacement onto the agenda of the debate, and to get our nuclear weaponsconsidered in the context of international law and treaty obligations. We must mountconvincing arguments that the way to end the threat of nuclear proliferation and nuclear war is to begin the process of disarmament, as required by the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. This is a great challenge, but we have much on our side. A recent public opinion pollshowed that 54% of the population oppose Trident Replacement when they realise it couldcost up to £25 billion. And we are building on strong foundations in our campaigning, formuch has already been initiated in 2005. Since last summer, CND has facilitated a regularstrategy group, drawing together a range of organisations. There has been strong opposition by MPs, with Parliamentary CND playing a key role. Amongst the trade unionsthere has been significant opposition, much down to the initiative of CND and its affiliatedunions. Work is underway in the faith communities, public meetings are being organisedaround the country, opposition is planned at related bases and facilities like Faslane and Aldermaston, and campaigning materials have been produced. The most urgent localcampaigning material is the No Trident Replacement Petition. I have challenged every CND member to get a minimum of 10 signatures on the petition form that you will find with this Annual Review. If that were achieved, we would have hundreds of thousands of signatures to hand in to the Prime Minister at Easter. Please do all you can to support this.Our key current demands are enshrined in parliamentary Early Day Motion 1197, whichcalls for a full debate, including on the option of non-replacement and demands that thedecision be made by Parliament. Please contact your MP and ask them to sign up to it. Putthe arguments to them about why weapons of mass destruction cannot secure peace andsecurity for Britain and the world. There is much else to engage us in the year ahead. The next stop in the US war drivemay be Iran, and we must oppose any attack. Military strikes are not the answer to theregion’s complex issues, as the situation in Iraq clearly shows. Diplomatic solutions must bepursued. Nuclear power is also on the agenda again in Britain and we are working tooppose the building of a new generation of nuclear power stations. We believe there issufficient evidence to demonstrate that nuclear power is not a clean, safe answer to climatechange, whatever the nuclear industry may tell us. Thank you for everything you have done for the cause of peace and nucleardisarmament over the past year. Let us work to ensure that 2006 is the year in which webuild ever greater opposition to nuclear weapons and war.
