About 2/2 /Aims & Policies:  

  • 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:

  • 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.

2.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.

3.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)
