Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament

In British politics, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament is a pacifist organisation which has been at the forefront of the peace movement in the United Kingdom.

Its logo, designed in 1958 by Gerald Holtom, became widespread outside of Britain during the 1960s as the "peace symbol". The peace symbol is based on the international semaphore symbols for "N" and "D" (for Nuclear Disarmament) enclosed within a circle. There is a common misconception that Bertrand Russell designed the logo, stemming from him being president of CND at the time.

CND organised an anti-war march called Don't Attack Iraq[?] on the September 28, 2002 in London.
