The attack on Yemen is a dangerous escalation of the conflict in the Middle East. This is the most dangerous time for more than two decades in the region and it raises the spectre of nuclear weapons use. Read our assessment of the nuclear risk in this month's Campaign magazine. And back here in the UK, the government is intent on pushing nuclear power. But as we argue in the magazine, nuclear is not the answer to the climate or energy crisis.
You can now read CND’s Campaign Review 2023 magazine . It has certainly been a difficult year, but CND supporters have risen to the challenges. In villages, towns, and cities across the country; in every region and nation; in a broad range of political parties, trade unions and other organisations, we have been working relentlessly to raise the alarm on nuclear risks and to work towards removing roadblocks to peace. Read about our actions to make the world a safer place in our annual round-up.
A humanitarian catastrophe is unfolding in Gaza which must mean we increase the political pressure for a ceasefire.

Find out what's next for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
We have all been left horrified by events in the Middle East since the last edition of this magazine. As CND's General Secretary, Kate Hudson, writes in this edition, "the mounting death toll in Gaza and the West Bank is a stain on the conscience of humanity". Read the article for further insights. In other news, as we face the prospect of an election in the next year, the magazine features an article assessing Labour's position on nuclear issues.
The trade union movement has historically been a strong ally of the peace movement, but motions adopted at recent gatherings of the Trades Union Congress have advocated more military spending.

We also have a guest article on why space is getting overcrowded - and what this means for our security.
News broke last week of more proof that US nuclear weapons are coming to Britain. Find out more - and how CND is responded - in this month's magazine.

Each August we mark the anniversary of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki - a reminder to the world of why we must scrap nuclear weapons.

We also report back from the most recent NATO summit - highlighting the nuclear threat of the alliance.
The government is intent on cracking down on our right to protest. In this month’s magazine we explain more on why we must resist a dangerous new law which is a risk to democracy. The magazine also features an article on how CND is attending an upcoming UN conference, in order to hold the British government to account over its nuclear arsenal.
The world is a dangerous place, and the British government is contributing to the nuclear risk. They are allowing US nuclear weapons back to this country, spending more money on weapons and war, and supporting the expansion of NATO. While all the time they are attacking our right to protest! All these issues are explored in our summer edition of Campaign.
