Bruce Kent is working with a range of different organisations to highlight the spending on Trident when so much investment is needed to eradicate poverty and boost people-friendly development. Kent argues that the elimination of Trident would free up funds to make our world a safer and more peaceful place to live.

The Christian Muslim Dialogue Group, St Philip’s Centre and Leicester Council of Faiths have jointly facilitated what should be a lively presentation with questions and responses by people from different faiths.
