Background: Headed by a pipe band, more than 4,000 people marched through the streets of Glasgow, Scotland, November 19 in a protest against the proposed Polaris atom-submarine base at Holy Loch on the Scottish River Clyde.
The marchers - many of whom had travelled hundreds of miles to attend - carried placards reading: "Glasgow Council for Nuclear Disarmaments" and "Clyde Now - Tyne next". They were led by three Scottish Labour members of Parliament.
Speaking to the campaigners, the Reverend Currie said: "Speaking I know for thousands of others - Glasgowers, Scottish and British Men and Women - we say no Polaris, no more weapons of war. We must have peace".
Following cheers from the crowds, another speaker said "...... and with all the weapons that can be used by a civilized people we will fight for our rights to live. And I say whatever your future may be, whether it's going to be annihilation or whether it's going to be survival you will have your deserved fate. But I say for myself that I believe that you intend to fight and live".
After the demonstration, a resolution was sent to Prime Minister Harold Mcmillan protesting against the granting of facilities to the United States Government for the establishing of a Polaris submarine base in the Holy Loch, and demanding their withdrawal.
