workingclasshistory:

On this day, 16 February 1963 a group of activists calling themselves the Spies for Peace broke into a secret UK government bunker called RSG 6. They stole classified documents within and published them, showing that the government was preparing for nuclear war and had constructed a network of bunkers – Regional Seats of Government – to protect key government officials while the general population was annihilated. This is an informative account of the RSGs by Nicolas Walter, one of the “Spies”: http://ift.tt/2sBjXEQ
