Peter Le Mare is one of thousands of local CND supporters who have kept the movement alive over the last 60 years by taking our campaign directly to their local communities. Peter organises a CND stall in the centre of Penzance every weekend.

‘I marched in 1959 and every one since,’ Peter told CND. ‘I marched because we were the first generation to realise that the world could end in less than half an hour. We can Ban The Bomb. I still believe we can do it.‘

The stall has been in Penzance since the mid 1970s and I have kept it going since the late 1980s. I’ve been around a long time, so it is nice to have been given the Nobel Peace Prize – it belongs to all of us.’

What is 60 faces of CND?
2018 is the 60th anniversary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

Founded in 1958 at the height of the Cold War, CND has been a powerful collective voice against the dangers of nuclear weapons.

CND’s greatest strength has always been its members.
Incredible people have shaped our history,
our present and will continue to inspire in the future.

Here we take a look at 60 Faces of CND,
60 people who represent all the millions of people
who have campaigned for nuclear disarmament over the decades
and have made our organisation so remarkable.
