 It’s 12.30 on a hot afternoon in the centre of Chester and Trident Ploughshares supporters are holding the anti-nuclear fort with a street stall. Some people consider this way of communicating ‘old hat’ but judging by the response stall members got today, it’s still a vital way of speaking directly to the general public, even in our digital age.

This sort of stall can have an immediate and global reach, especially in Chester. The two people on the left of the picture are visiting the city and signed petitions. They’re from Iran – they’re wearing the famous green armbands, sharing experiences of repression and resistance and showing their support for international nuclear disarmament.
