A Little Bit of History
The first Aldermaston March was planned at a meeting in Cookham in 1957 to take place at Easter 1958. On this occasion the march was lead by Donald Soper who, with John Berger, addressed the marchers and the public at the old Maidenhead Town Hall.
To press governments to adhere to the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty. This means not allowing Fylingdales and Menwith Hill in Yorkshire, both British Listening Centres, to be used for phone tapping by the USA and as part of their defence shield.
Keeping a watchful eye on the BNFL new management at Aldermaston, where there have been past infringement of rules regarding the disposal of nuclear waste into the Thames and other waters.

Did you know. . .
A British nuclear-powered Trident submarine is out on patrol, submerged, ready, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The United States has between eleven and fifteen nuclear-missile firing submarines out on patrol, France has two and the Russians one or more.
All these submarines are programmed to fire their computer-targeted missiles on receiving a simple radio signal.
This is today’s reality. Not some future threat. Not some fantasy computer game.
You can help stop this lunacy.
