Lockheed Martin HQ exposed by Trident Ploughshares

Nuke maker's AGM disrupted.

On 19 November, following the Trident Ploughshares (TP) annual meeting in London, 15 TP members headed to the UK headquarters of arms manufacturer Lockheed Martin:  Cunard House, 15 Lower Regent St. Two people climbed up beside the doors, others leafleted and held banners across the entrance: ‘Lockheed Martin Maker of Weapons of Mass Murder’ and ‘Use Your Skills For Peace’.

Lockheed Martin has a £3.5bn contract from the British government to design and build a new generation of nuclear weapons to replace the current Trident nuclear warheads.

Police arrived, but soon left when they realised that the activists were from Trident Ploughshares.
