On 7 August around 20 anti-nuclear activists gathered outside the main gates of AWE Aldermaston for the launch of Block the Builders.

After a minute's silence in remeberance of the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, BtB representatives gave a brief press statements and interviews to local and regional media.

A mock blockade of "builders" ensued, followed by a flurry of creative activity - including music and poetry. Chalked outlines symbolising the nuclear dead were left at the gates.

AWPC would like to thank everyone who came down and made the launch a positive and creative event.
