Serco

Serco is one of the three companies that make up AWE-ML - the joint venture company with the contract to run AWE Aldermaston and Burghfield until 2025.

Serco are a UK FTSE-100 company with diverse contracts which include managing detention centres, prisons, hospitals, schools and public transport. Typically almost 30% of their turnover comes from the "defence" sector worldwide.

Because Serco are floated on the London stock exchange it is possible for AWPC - and others - to hold shares in the company. Shareholders are entitled to attend the company's AGM, ask annoying questions and arrive on their doorstep requesting an inspection of the accounts.

Here you can find some stories relating to AWPC's Serco shareholder campaign.

Freedom to protest

As well as campaigning directly against Britain's nuclear weapons programme, over the past 24 years, we have maintained our right to protest in the proud tradition of women's protest and resistance. There have been repeated attempts over the years to get rid of the camp by the Ministry of Defence and the companies which run Aldermaston. In 2009 we finally won the right to camp on Ministry of Defence land outside the fence at Aldermaston.
