Arthur West is the Chair of Scottish CND, and has been a member of the organisation for over 30 years. He has been very active at both national and local levels, including as secretary of Ayrshire CND, and participating in many protests and blockades at Faslane and elsewhere. Involved in many progressive campaigns over the years, as a trade unionist Arthur has been very active in Unison and has done much to raise the anti-nuclear cause, particularly around the question of Trident and employment.

Arthur was recently delighted with the news that the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to ICAN, saying, ‘This is a well-deserved award. CND is proud to be a partner of this international campaign and will continue working with them to achieve a nuclear free world.’
