Dave Webb has been Chair of CND since 2010 and has played a leading role in CND’s work on missile defence. He is the convenor of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space and a member of Scientists for Global Responsibility.

Dave wrote the following when he visited Hiroshima on the 70th anniversary of the bombing; ‘You can’t help but be moved and try to imagine what it must have been like. But I can’t do it. My imagination is not that good and I have never experienced anything anywhere near as devastating as the stories that the Hibakusha tell. I hope I never do. I hope no-one ever does. How can we, knowing all these things, still threaten to inflict that kind of suffering on millions of people? How can we still think we have a right to possess weapons with that kind of inhumane destructive power?’

What is 60 faces of CND?
2018 is the 60th anniversary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

Founded in 1958 at the height of the Cold War, CND has been a powerful collective voice against the dangers of nuclear weapons.

CND’s greatest strength has always been its members.
Incredible people have shaped our history,
our present and will continue to inspire in the future.

Here we take a look at 60 Faces of CND,
60 people who represent all the millions of people
who have campaigned for nuclear disarmament over the decades
and have made our organisation so remarkable.
