From jazz and folk to anarcho-punk, the cause of nuclear disarmament has been ardently defended by musicians. This listening session with London CND and Youth and Student CND will rewind the tapes all the way to the 1950s and take you on a musical journey. Alongside a live YouTube playlist picking out historic moments where music and anti-nuclear activism intersect, join Professor George McKay, an academic of pop music, peace and protest, as well as musicians from Crass and the Fallout Marching Band, and activists from famous women’s peace camp Greenham Common as we explore how music has shaped the peace movement.
“They keep their fucking power ’cause their finger’s on the button / They’ve got control and won’t let it be forgotten” Banned From the Roxy – Crass
