Edinburgh: Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond led a protest march against the replacement of Trident in Edinburgh.       
     “The Scottish government completely opposes the replacement of the Trident system and the dumping of deadly nuclear weapons in Scotland,” Salmond said at the march.
     “Most MSPs and members of the public share this government’s view that Scotland should be nucelar free. Through action, such as the Trident Protest, we can send a strong mesage to the UK Government that we will not stand for the dumping of weapons of mass destruction in Scotland,” he said.
     The march, organised by Scotland’s for Peace, began outside the Scottish Parliament and ended with a rally at the Grassmarket.
