A 29-year-old woman was arrested at HM Naval Base Clyde this week as Faslane Peace Campers commemorated the 74th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Japan.

Bearing a placard reading ‘Never again’, the protester symbolically doused herself with red paint before lying in the road in front of the main gate at the Faslane facility, disrupting traffic as the base underwent shift-change.

On refusing police requests to move, she was arrested for obstruction of the highway.

Peace camper Emma, who attended the demonstration, stated: "Once again we have the spectacle of a peaceful protester being arrested whilst the Trident deployments from Faslane continue with seeming impunity, against international law and in contravention of every convention and rule of warfare.

"With Bolivia today becoming the latest member state to ratify the United Nations’ nuclear weapon ban treaty, it’s clear the international consensus is moving against these weapons of mass destruction, in the hope that the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are never seen again.

"Meanwhile, our Prime Minister visited recently to affirm his commitment to wasting £205 billion of public funds on a new generation of nuclear terrorism – money which would be better spent fighting climate change.

"It’s as if the government is determined to be on the wrong side of history in every possible way."

The anniversary of the World War Two bombings of Japan – to date, the only detonation of nuclear weapons in war – has been a fixture in the Peace Camp’s calendar throughout the protest site’s 37-year history.

Last year’s event saw three arrests for breach of the peace when campaigners chained themselves together to block an entrance to the submarine base.

All three were subsequently found to have ‘no case to answer’ at trial in Dumbarton Sheriff Court.

Following Tuesday’s arrest, the protestor was later released from Clydebank police station, to appear in court at Dumbarton on Wednesday, August 28 charged with alleged vandalism offences.
