The blockaders, who ‘locked-on’ by joining their hands together inside plastic tubes, managed to stay in place for five hours before leaving. There were no arrests.

The action was part of a year-long campaign of actions organised by Action AWE, which describes itself as ‘a grassroots campaign of nonviolent actions dedicated to halting nuclear weapons production at the atomic weapons establishment (AWE) factories at Aldermaston and Burghfield’.
