AlliantACTION is the organizer of weekly vigil and direct actions outside ATK corporate headquarters in Edina. It begun in 1996 with a small blockade in front of the main entrance.

The protesters felt, that a more permanent presence was needed at Alliants front door. So the weekly vigil was born.

About the campaign

In March 2007 parliament voted in favour of a replacement for the current Trident system, a new fleet of nuclear armed submarines which would commit Britain to another 50 years as a nuclear weapons state. The new submarines will require missiles and warheads. The warheads will be manufactured at Aldermaston.

De una alianza defensiva a una alianza para intervenciones militares.
