Youth and Student CND is the branch of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament for anyone under the age of 25 or in education.
CND was formed in 1958 and has been campaigning non-violently ever since to achieve British nuclear disarmament – for scrapping the Trident nuclear weapons system and preventing its replacement. Youth and Student CND is a specialist section of the national organisation.
Youth and Student CND believes that nuclear weapons are now more irrelevant than ever. In a time of austerity, it’s absurd that billions are spent on an anachronistic weapon of mass destruction which is strategically useless against the major global threats to our security. We believe that the money could be better spent on a whole variety of things of greater social value, like reinstating EMA or cancelling tuition fees, or saving the NHS.
