About this object

After a lull in the 1970s, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament saw a revival in the early 1980s in response to the ramping up of the US-Russian arms race, and the siting of US cruise missiles in the UK. Membership increased, and several large national demonstrations raised the profile of the issue of disarmament. Women-only peace camps emerged at the Cruise missile bases, most notably at Greenham Common , where a permanent peace camp was established for ten years until the removal of the missiles in 1991. CND is still campaigning today against the renewal of the Trident missile system .
