Ann Garrett, Green Party General Election Candidate for Erith and Thamesmead, joined the Vote Out Trident demonstration outside the Ministry of Defence on 13 April.
Kate Hudson, General Secretary of CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament) addressed some two hundred demonstrators, highlighting the great cost that renewal of Trident nuclear weapons would incur, wasting over £100 billion over 30 years which could be used towards areas of more benefit to society, including education and healthcare.
