The Green Party does not believe that violence is much of an answer to anything. The threat of nuclear weapons does not seem to us to be a proportionate response when the violence of others has to be dealt with. The long term human and environmental damage caused by the use of such weapons is not acceptable. The cost of building and maintaining such weapons when apparently we can’t afford to feed our own vulnerable people, is not acceptable. We’re therefore very pleased to be giving our support to the Wool against Weapons protest.
