Bromley Cuts Concern supporter Ann Garrett writes as secretary of Bromley and Beckenham CND
Several members of Bromley and Beckenham CND were on the Trade Union Council anti -cuts London march on March 26th from Embankment to Hyde Park. Their specific message was ' cut Trident not public services and jobs'. They joined over half a million people from many different organisations who are outraged at the way the Goverment cuts will affect large sections of communities and particularly the vulnerable.
Over £1.5 billion a year is spent on maintaining the British Trident nuclear submarine missile system. This would pay for countless public amenities which are being axed, for extra nurses and teachers and other vital public sector jobs.
