The Peace Movement – theme for December 2014
Non government peace movements have a long and noble history, and their work is now more critical than ever. Now, they are becoming more organised, and governments can no longer ignore their voices.
The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons is a global grassroots movement for the total elimination of nuclear weapons through a legally binding, verifiableNuclear Weapons Convention.
With more than 200 partner organizations in 60 countries, ICAN provides a voice to the overwhelming majority of people globally who support the prompt abolition of nuclear weapons.
Prominent individuals such as anti-apartheid leader Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama and Nobel Peace Prize winner Jody Williams have lent their support to the campaign.
http://www.cnduk.org/ CND campaigns non-violently to rid the world of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction and to create genuine security for future generations.
CND opposes all nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction: their development, manufacture, testing, deployment and use or threatened use by any country.
Our external strategic objectives, as decided by delegates to our annual conference, are:
- Elimination of British nuclear weapons and global abolition of nuclear weapons
- Cancellation of Trident by the British government. And policy not to replace or enhance Trident nor develop, purchase or deploy other nuclear weapons or allow the deployment of any foreign nuclear weapons on British soil or in British waters.
- An all encompassing Fissile Material Cut-Off Treaty is agreed.
- Implementation of an arms conversion policy by the British government
- Immediate negotiations leading swiftly to the rapid, timetabled abolition of nuclear forces worldwide and the conclusion of a Nuclear Weapons Convention
- Prevention and cessation of wars in which the nuclear weapons of Britain or other countries might be used
- Abolition of other threats of mass destruction or indiscriminate effect
- Full international compliance with agreed Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC)
- A strengthened Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) agreed
- Global abandonment of space weapons and missile defence programmes. An international agreement on the Prevention of an Arms Race in Outer Space
- Implementation of a ban on the manufacture, testing and use of Depleted Uranium weapons
- Nuclear-free, less militarised and more secure Europe
- Extension of the influence, resources and funding of the Organisation for Security and Co- Operation on Europe (OSCE)
- No military nuclearisation of the European Union
- Withdrawal of all US military bases and nuclear weapons from Europe and no nuclear or other expansion of NATO
- Formal Nuclear Weapon-Free Zones in Europe established.
- Britain withdrawn from NATO and all foreign military bases on British soil closed.
- The closure of the nuclear power industry
- Prevention of new build nuclear power stations and replacement of nuclear by universally acceptable sustainable energy technologies
- Establishment of safe policies on nuclear waste storage and on re- use of contaminated land transport of plutonium and depleted uranium
- Independent control and verification of plutonium, uranium and depleted uranium stocks.
We aim to…
Change Government policies to bring about the elimination of British nuclear weapons as a major contribution to global abolition.
Stimulate wide public debate on the need for alternatives both to the nuclear cycle and to military attempts to resolve conflict.
Empower people to engage actively in the political process and to work for a nuclear-free and peaceful future.
Co-operate with other groups in the UK and internationally to ensure the development of greater mutual security
As a British campaign, we concentrate first and foremost on British nuclear weapons but we also work with anti-nuclear groups in other countries to eliminate the global threat. CND is also present at the United Nations and other international disarmament conferences.
CND is funded entirely by its members and supporters. You can help by supporting CND. Join us today
