Meet the Youth and Student Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
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. While education, healthcare and other public services are squeezed and underfunded, more money keeps being poured into anachronistic weapons of mass destruction. We believe that the billions wasted on dangerous, immoral, illegal and strategically useless weapons would be better spent on a whole variety of things of greater social value.
We want to create a more peaceful world: a world which isn’t pointing weapons of mass destruction at itself, and a world which spends its efforts and money building better working and living conditions for people everywhere.
