An evening with Kate Hudson: CND at 60

Kate Hudson has been General Secretary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament since September 2010. Prior to this she served as the organisation's Chair from 2003. She is a leading anti-nuclear and anti-war campaigner nationally and internationally.

Kate will be joining us to discuss her new book, CND at 60, the inside story of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, which has become a byword for protest and radicalism, shaping three generations and inspiring mass movements for peace across the globe.

Timed to coincide with the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament’s 60th anniversary, and drawing on archive material and interviews with activists from across the decades, the book situates CND’s current work in the context of the Trump presidency and increasing global tensions around nuclear weapons.

Founded in 1958 at the height of the Cold War, CND voiced a growing concern about the dangers of nuclear weapons. Since then CND has become a byword for protest and radicalism, shaping three generations and inspiring mass movements for peace across the globe.

This is a timely and important book, by CND general secretary Kate Hudson. It provides detailed coverage of the inside story of six decades of CND – from the mass protests at Aldermaston and Greenham Common, to its central role in post 9/11 anti-war campaigning, to today’s struggle to prevent Trident replacement and win support for the United Nations’ new global ban on nuclear weapons.
