We are happy to endorse the SCND Statement on a second independence referendum.
“Scottish CND welcomes the First Minister’s move to hold a second independence referendum. Brexit is a clear example of the Prime Minister’s disregard for the democratically expressed opinions of the Scottish people, as is the UK Government’s decision to boycott negotiations for an United Nations Nuclear Weapons Global Ban Treaty. The conference is starting in two weeks in New York , and instead of participating, the UK. Government chooses to go ahead with the modernisation of nuclear weapons which are all based in Scotland against the will of our democratically elected representatives at both Holyrood and Westminster. We look forward to working for a free and independent Scotland and the end of UK nuclear weapons based here – or anywhere.”

SNP Conference, March 2017
The SNPCND Festival team ran a very successful and busy stall at the conference on the 17th and 18th of March in Aberdeen.
The new black t-shirts with our logo drew lots of admiring comments. But the best of the days work was the many interesting conversations we had with such a variety of people.
