Stop the Next Generation of Nuclear Weapons (STiNG)

The Stop the Next Generation (STiNG) campaign was set up by AWPC to oppose the government's plans to equip Aldermaston to test, design and build the next generation of nuclear warheads at Aldermaston. Since 2002, when AWE published their Site Development Strategy Plan which set out their plans to develop Aldermaston and Burghfield, AWPC has campaigned against the new developments, working in cooperation with a wide range of other anti-nuclear individuals, local groups and national organisations.

Our aim is to stop the next generation of nuclear warheads for the next Trident from being built at Aldermaston, and we need your help.

In 2002, AWE Aldermaston and Burghfield embarked on a massive building programme which will equip the UK government to design, test and build a new generation of nuclear warheads. The developments are on the same scale as Heathrow's Terminal 5. They started long before parliament voted in March 2007 to replace Trident submarines. They have not yet voted to replace the warheads.
The STNG campaign aims to stop new warheads being built at AWE using a range of tactics, in coperation with others to: objecting to the new developments through the local authority planning process; blocking construction traffic; writing to MPs; and most importantly, informing people - locally, nationally and internationally - about what's going on at Aldermaston, so that together we can Stop the Next Generation of Nuclear Weapons.
