Blur lead singer Damon Albarn was one of the participants on the four day march to Aldermaston in 2004, opposing the proposed expansion of the site. He has regularly attended anti-nuclear events over the years as a lifelong supporter of CND. Albarn believes that campaigning against nuclear weapons is ‘about the future of humanity’.
The music star’s family also has a history of supporting the peace movement: during the Second World War, his grandfather declared himself a conscientious objector.
When Albarn won an MTV Award in 2001, instead of the usual thank-you speech, he just pointed to his CND t-shirt and proudly declared: ‘See this symbol. This is the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. You’ve got a voice – use it.’
