The Safe and Sound Property Lock-up is brought to you by volunteers from the Greater Manchester Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). It’s open 24 hours a day until 12 noon on Monday in the big, white marquee next to the food stalls in the Disability Camping Area. Property lock-ups are free and they also charge phones for the bargain price of just £3, with all proceeds going to CND.
Stuff we store: bikes, bags, instruments, wallets, keys, mp3 players, anything inanimate.
Stuff we don't store: pets, kids, bombs, guns or other animate or angsty things.
But we’re not just here to raise money - we’d also like you to get a flavour of what we do.
A bit about the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament is as relevant now as it was when it was formed 50 years ago. One of our slogans is 'Now More Than Ever' and over the past year when students have been occupying their universities protesting about the hike in fees; when people have been out on the streets protesting about the closure of advice centres, libraries, SureStart centres, maternity units, A&E units, etc, etc, the UK government is still spending £2 billion a year maintaining the Trident nuclear weapons programme.
By scrapping nuclear weapons and the replacement programme for Trident, we would save over £100 billion. Instead, we could invest in the development of marine energy technology and other forms of sustainable energy, providing alternative employment for defence workers and creating tens of thousands of new jobs. It would help meet our carbon emission targets and help meet the TUC’s commitment to the creation of 1 million climate jobs.
This is the sane way forward.
