Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament – CND

A selection of leaflets and pamphlets from the early 1980s which provide an idea of how the campaign was developing in the early years of the Thatcherite disaster. The early 1980s was probably the last resurgence of the movement against nuclear weapons in Britain – prompted by the agreement by the British government of the stationing of US imperialism’s cruise nuclear missiles in US airbases in the southern part of England.
