10 March 2018Peace campaigner comes to Cromarty
In a talk sponsored by the Cromarty Peace Group, veteran anti-nuclear activist Brian Quail spoke yesterday evening of his many protests against nuclear conveys and the dangers of nuclear weapons. As a 'veteran' in both age (78) and experience of sit-down and lay-down protests at Coulport and Faslane, the retired classics teacher has a record of more than a dozen convictions and has been jailed many times for failing to pay his fines. The National described him as "the Glasgow pensioner who can stop powerful 100 kiloton nuclear warheads using nothing by a pedestrian crossing."
In his talk he referred to the Doomsday Clock which was moved last month to just two minutes to midnight, the closest point to 'apocalypse' since 1953 when the US and the Soviet Union tested hydrogen bombs.
