Oceans of Work: Arms Conversion Revisited

A recent gathering by the Peace Economy Project (USA) brought together activists and researchers who had been involved in the 1980's and 90's in campaigns for the conversion of arms industries, with an interest in renewing this work.

A new resource, Oceans of Work: Arms Conversion Revisited (published January 2007) is based on a re-evaluation of “Oceans of Work”, produced by the Barrow Alternative Employment Committee in 1987, as part of the campaign by local trade unionists for alternative, civil work to the construction of the Trident submarines. The need for renewable energy systems provides an opportunity for job creation, as this report proposes.

Please share any new resources and information on present conversion efforts.
