Join London CND for a snappy online event about how nuclear disarmament connects to the climate and care crises with an action-oriented approach.
World military spending has more than doubled since the end of the Cold War. But does it really make us safer? With Covid-19 already killing more people in Britain than WW2 air strikes, our understanding of security has changed dramatically. While in the 70s and 80s, the threat of nuclear warfare was in everyone’s mind, the ever-growing awareness of climate change and the immediate reality of our current care crisis now take an overwhelming precedent.
Yet, in the middle of this global pandemic, despite the absolute urgency to fund the NHS, education and tackle homelessness; the government committed £205 billion to replace Trident, Britain’s nuclear weapons system.
This event will be produced in collaboration with Stop The War Coalition and De-Militarise Education. After a 25 minute dynamic exploration of these issues, the session will take an action-oriented approach, triggering our imagination for campaigning together in times of pandemic to reclaim Security from militarism.
We promise we’ll keep it short, Zoom fatigue is real…
