AWRE Aldermaston – Heard of it?

Today CND along with other Peace groups and including two Nobel Peace Prize Winners,  are today blockading the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment (AWRE) at Aldermaston. So far I have not heard one word about this remarkable event on BBC news and there is nothing at all on the BBC web site. I find this more than just curious and I have a great deal of trouble in suppressing the thought that the BBC, as an undoubted part of the establishment, is keeping this news very, very low key.

Billions of Pounds are scheduled to be spent on ‘upgrading’ this place which for decades has seen out taxes spent on unusable, ¬†Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD’s) and we’ve heard that acronym before haven’t we? In these times of near economic collapse the time is even more right to recognise that these weapons have no place in the modern World and their only purpose is to prop up the ego’s of those in power.
