London Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament invites you to join us

A Minister for Peace and Disarmament

Can Labour help shape a new political culture?

Wed 11 October

6.30pm to 8.00pm

Wilson Room, Portcullis House, Victoria Embankment, SW1A 2JR

with

  • Fabian Hamilton MP, Labour Shadow Peace and Disarmament Minister
  • Christine Shawcroft, Labour Party National Executive Committee
  • Daniel Blaney, Labour CND

Fifty three countries signed the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons on 20 September, the first day it opened for signature. But the UK government has refused ever to sign it. Labour’s manifesto promises to create a Minister for Peace and Disarmament, part of its commitment to reducing human suffering caused by war by focusing on protecting civilians, conflict prevention and resolution, and peace-building, London CND asks if and how these policies can reshape the war culture of past decades.

All welcome

National CND Protest: No Nuclear War

National CND Protest: No Nuclear War

  • Downing Street London, England, SW1A United Kingdom (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

CND are staging a protest at Downing Street to say 'No Nuclear War'. 
Here is a statement from CND:

We are alarmed by the threat of nuclear war in North East Asia and the wider Pacific region. North Korea continues to test nuclear weapons and missiles in defiance of the international community, while the US and its allies continue provocative actions, threats and exercises in or near North East Asia and the Pacific. There is a real danger that these actions will lead to the use of nuclear weapons by intention or miscalculation. There are no safe hands for nuclear weapons and any detonation of a nuclear device would be a humanitarian catastrophe with global impacts. Threatening and isolating the North Korean regime risks escalating the conflict rather than encouraging solutions.

We urge the UK Government to use all appropriate diplomatic, international and legal means to end nuclear threats, to push for negotiations with North Korea and a return to the Six-Party Talks involving China, North Korea, South Korea, Japan, Russia and the US. Both immediate and longer term solutions are needed including creating a zone free of nuclear weapons in North East Asia, a process to address the underlying causes of regional insecurity and conflict on the Korean Peninsula, and the promotion of peace, development and cooperative co-existence and security for all peoples in the region. 

We call on the UK Government to reject a military solution to the conflict and urgently use its influence to press for all involved to avoid and refrain from further provocative rhetoric or military exercises and tests.

SHADOW WORLD - CND Screenings

Sands Films Cinema and Event Listing

Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at 7:30 PM (BST)

London, United Kingdom

Dir.: JOHAN GRIMONPREZ

(USA, 2016)

BASED ON THE BOOK “THE SHADOW WORLD” BY ANDREW FEINSTEIN

Introduced by the author and followed by a Q&A

The film reveals how the international trade in weapons – with the complicity of governments and intelligence agencies, investigative and prosecutorial bodies, weapons manufacturers, dealers and agents – fosters corruption, determines economic and foreign policies, undermines democracy and creates widespread suffering.

Unravelling a number of the world’s largest and most corrupt arms deals through those involved in perpetrating and investigating them, the film illustrates why this trade accounts for almost 40% of all corruption in global trade, and how it operates in a parallel legal universe, in which the national security elite who drive it are seldom prosecuted for their often illegal actions. SHADOW WORLD posits alternatives through the experience of a peace activist and a war correspondent, as well as through the voice of Eduardo Galeano, who contributed selections from his stories for the film.

Ultimately SHADOW WORLD reveals the real costs of war, the way the arms trade drives it, how weapons of war are turned against citizens of liberal democracies and how the trade decreases rather than enhances security for us all. In shedding light on how our realities are being constructed, the film offers a way for audiences to see through this horror, in the hopes of creating a better future.
