From The Socialist newspaper, 16 February 2001

Arrests at Faslane's big blockade

OVER 350 people were arrested in the "Big Blockade" at Faslane, a protest at the nuclear submarine base in Scotland which holds Britain's Trident fleet. The arrests included Scottish Socialist Party MSP Tommy Sheridan and Labour MP George Galloway.

George Galloway said: "We are worried about how to pay for care of the elderly and reducing class sizes in schools.

"However we are spending millions on weapons of mass destruction that will never be used."

Before Christmas Tommy Sheridan served five days of a 14-day sentence for non-payment of a fine after last year's Faslane protest and was honouring a promise to go back to Faslane for this year's anti Trident demo.
