Breach of the Peace – Faslane Big Blockade


18 min – Scotland 2004

Faslane, thirty miles from Glasgow in Scotland, is the base for Britain’s Trident nuclear missile submarines carrying nuclear weapons with the destructive power equal to 1,000 Hiroshima’s.

Over the past few years, there have been a series of mass non-violent but disruptive direct actions at Faslane and Coulport nuclear weapons bases on the Clyde – the Big Blockade & Faslane 365! Those events saw a diversity of people from all over the world, including lots of young people, church people and politicians turning out – many being arrested for trying to uphold international law, and stop Trident.

Camcorder Guerillas were there to capture the full story, using the exercise to give new members a chance to participate in the filming process.
