Stop new warhead lab at AWE Aldermaston

The Atomic Weapons Establishment is seeking planning permission for a
new Hydrodynamics Research facility at Aldermaston which will study the
behaviour of materials within the warhead. The facility will recreate
the extreme conditions within a nuclear explosion without causing a
detonation.

The government claims this testing is to ensure the reliability of
the existing Trident warheads, but the proposed facility is planned with
the expectation that AWE will be asked to build a new generation of warheads in the coming years.

Please help by calling on the local authority to block their planning application.
