UK’s Anti-Nuclear Movement
ActionAWE is part of the anti-nuclear movement in the UK. The movement comprises of various groups against nuclear technologies such as nuclear weapons and nuclear power.
Both individuals and groups take part in the anti-nuclear protests and demonstrations that have occurred in the UK for many decades.
We’re one of the most prominent groups in the UK opposing nuclear weapons. The fight against nuclear weaponry began as early as 1958 and still continues.
Our mission is to eradicate weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons worldwide to secure the future of new generations. We oppose the creation, production, implementation, use, and testing of nuclear weapons.
Since the beginning of the 20th Century, we continue to fight against nuclear weapons. The support for groups and individuals against nuclear technology has increased immensely over the years.
DID YOU know that nuclear warheads are regularly transported for hundreds of miles along UK roads? Police and Marines escort these military convoys between the warhead factory near Aldermaston and the Trident submarine base in Scotland.

STAGE 3: While you are waiting
STAGE 4: When you know some people will be released
Many people joining Action AWE will already be skilled and experienced in getting their message out via the mass media but others may welcome some pointers. Some actions will be planned and publicized in advance, others will be unannounced.
