Back in July, 472 MPs voted to replace Trident, and 117 voted against. This included all by one Scottish MP, Green MP Caroline Lucas, 47 Labour MPs and some from Sinn Fein and other parties. A full list is at the bottom of this Guardian article.

You can use this survey by CND to find out how your new MP or other candidates who stood will vote on Trident renewal in 2016.

The results of the Global Day of Action on Military Spending are in.
Here’s how people voted:

GDAMS 2016 results

With the military being allocated just 5% of its current budget, those who responded to the survey (1024 people, from churches to street stalls) overall felt that the military gets 20 times more money than it should, and that the rest should be spent on sustainable security like health and addressing climate change.

White PoppyOrder your white poppy to wear all year round.  

White poppies are to remember all the victims of war, and promote a culture of peace.

They are a conversation-starter when you’re out and about, or an easy way to slip comments about nonviolence to family and friends if you’re not up for a full debate.

The centenary of WWI is a good time to start wearing a white poppy. While we’re being fed ideas of how the war started, who “won” etc, let’s remember all the victims and learn the devastation caused by war and its preparation.

Suggested donation £1.50 (inc. p&p), 60p per additional poppy. Why not order yours now? White poppies are produced by the Peace Pledge Union.

The Peace Education Network has resources for a Remembrance primary school assembly. There is a script and a Teach Peace Remembrance slideshow.
