Close Trump's military bases

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


The UK is home to at least five US military and intelligence bases, which helps the US prosecute its wars and spy on the world's population.

These include: 

  • Lakenheath - A US Air Force base, in Suffolk
  • Menwith Hill - An NSA spy base, in Yorkshire
  • Welford - A US munitions storage site, in Berkshire

We believe these bases should close. 

There is a very real chance that the US President - Donald Trump - will start a major war.

Over the last year, he has proposed a huge increase in military spending, directly threatened Iran and North Korea, and appointed John Bolton as his National Security Advisor. Bolton is probably the most right-wing, pro-war official of the George W. Bush administration and has repeatedly called for military attacks on Iran, North Korea and elsewhere. 

Trump recently led attacks on Syria and reserves the right for further strikes which, among other things, have the potential to lead to direct conflict with Russia.

We are also greatly concerned by his decision to pull the US out of the Iran Nuclear Deal and the recent appointment of anti-Iran hawks to his administration.

We do not want the UK to be complicit in US wars. We do not want Trump and Bolton using the UK as an aircraft carrier. 

We call on the UK government to close down all US bases on UK soil. 

Thank you.
