Faslane Peace Camp

'Since 1982 Faslane Peace Camp has been occupied by an ever expanding group of multinational Peace activists...
Intent on disrupting any attempts to make nuclear war, at
the Submarine Base. We are also doing a alternative lifestyle project.

Faslane Peace Camp is a permanent peace camp sited alongside Faslane Naval base in Argyll and Bute, Scotland (Google Maps link). It has been occupied continuously, in a few different locations, since 12 June 1982. In 1984 the book Faslane:Diary of a Peace Camp was published, co-written by the members of the peacecamp at the time.
The site and look of the camp has varied considerably over the years, depending on the number and attitude of the residents. At one point there were two sites (one at each main gate) with distinct political attitudes (roughly characterised as anarchist and socialist). The camp is well established with mains water, a conventional toilet, a telephone, a large kitchen and living room, hot water and a bath, and planning permission for 12 caravans. However, the tenancy was ended 5 years ago when the council borders changed. The new council then organised an eviction order but decided not to waste money on a large-scale eviction.

Camp residents have occasionally breached the security of the Naval Base by getting inside the fence [1] or by canoeing or swimming into the base. [2] Also by successfully disrupting the road transportation of the Trident missile warheads,[3] which are heavily guarded by the Special Escort Group (Ministry of Defence Police), and by blockading the two gates. [4]

They are also active, with Trident Ploughshares and CND in large public blockades of the base, attended by members of the public and a few politicians. Such annual events aim to keep the base closed for as long as possible by preventing its staff from arriving for work, and usually involve large numbers of protestors being arrested.'
