An anti-nuclear weapons organisation will be screening a film showcasing the history of direct action held at Faslane.

‘A Guided Tour of the Unacceptable’ will be screened at 7.30pm on Sunday, August 6 – the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945 - at the Words and Actions for Peace Centre in Edinburgh.

The film will explore the Faslane/Coulport nuclear weapon complex and detail the protests that have been held at the Clyde naval bases.

Hosted by Words and Actions for Peace and supported by activist groups Secure Scotland and Peace and Justice, the film hopes to make the public aware of the devastating and long-lasting effects of nuclear weapons.

Secure Scotland member, Janet Fenton, said: “As the nuclear threat is increased through the conflict in Ukraine, we need to be made aware (and constantly reminded) that these weapons are utterly horrific and inhumane.

“From uranium mining to atmospheric testing, they cause immeasurable human harm and today their numbers and power threaten us all with annihilation.

“Being brought face to face with this reality can strengthen our resolve that such a crime against humanity must never be repeated.

“There is now real hope that nuclear weapons can be prohibited and eliminated through the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and its huge global support.”

On Friday, July 28, the group will launch an exhibition called 'The Dawn of the Anthropocene, Hiroshima - 6 August 1945' in the same venue featuring images of the destruction in Hiroshima caused by the dropping of the atomic bomb.

The event will also provide information on the UN Treaty to stop nuclear arms – the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

The display will run until Friday, August 18 and will be open between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.

The images are provided by the Hiroshima Peace Museum and the International Campaign for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) and is presented jointly by Peace and Justice and Secure Scotland.
