2013 UK PILGRIMAGE FOR PEACE AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE REACHES DUNOON

Beginning on Iona at Pentecost Sunday May 19th, finishing at the Houses of Parliament in London: an act of witness and communal celebration drawing strength and inspiration from historic centres of prayer along the way…

Veronika Tudhope from Kilmarnoch who is the vice-chair of the Scottish Campaign for Nuclear disarmament (SCND) came into the studio to chat with Victor to inform  the listeners of what the pilgrimage would be doing as they pass through Dunoon

The 2013 Pilgrimage for Peace and Economic Justice has its origins in an Inter-Faith Service for Justice and Peace held at Hexham Abbey, Northumberland in January 2012, organised by Northumbrians for Peace, and SCANA (Scottish Clergy Against Nuclear Arms)’s second annual Easter Week Act of Witness outside the gates of the Faslane naval base in March 2012.

A primary aim of the 2013 Pilgrimage is to focus national public attention on the Government’s proposal to spend up to £100 billion renewing the Trident nuclear missile system, while continuing to slash NHS, education and social welfare budgets, including vital financial support for some of our most vulnerable and disadvantaged people and communities across the UK.
