Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
Connexions Directory of Groups & Websites 2018


Purpose: 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:
1. Elimination of British nuclear weapons and global abolition of nuclear weapons;
2. Abolition of other threats of mass destruction or indiscriminate effect;
3. Nuclear-free, less militarised and more secure Europe;
4. The closure of the nuclear power industry.

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.
