Dave Webb has been Chair of CND since 2010 and has played a leading role in CND’s work on missile defence. He is the convenor of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space and a member of Scientists for Global Responsibility.
Dave wrote the following when he visited Hiroshima on the 70th anniversary of the bombing; ‘You can’t help but be moved and try to imagine what it must have been like. But I can’t do it. My imagination is not that good and I have never experienced anything anywhere near as devastating as the stories that the Hibakusha tell. I hope I never do. I hope no-one ever does. How can we, knowing all these things, still threaten to inflict that kind of suffering on millions of people? How can we still think we have a right to possess weapons with that kind of inhumane destructive power?’
