Brian Quail: We have more power than we think, and together we can beat Trident
Veteran anti-nuclear activist Brian Quail says two key international developments mean a world without nuclear weapons is closer than ever
ON THE international scene, there have been two momentous events recently impacting on Trident.
First was the decision made on 7 July by 122 member states of the United Nations (UN) in New York to support a draft treaty banning nuclear weapons. Secondly, there was the award of the Nobel peace prize to ICAN (the International Campaign Against Nuclear weapons) for its work for the abolition of nuclear weapons.
