Junayd Islam is one of CND’s youngest, and most dedicated, supporters. Now 14, Junayd became active after attending 2016’s Stop Trident demonstration.
‘I got really interested in the anti-nuclear cause but I didn’t think there was anything I could do because I was too young,’ says Junayd. ‘But then I discovered there was something I could do! I could join Cambridge Student CND! And the rest is history.’
Junayd is now Chair of Cambridge Student CND, and arranges regular stalls, supports CND’s actions and arranges local demonstrations and meetings. Junayd goes on, ‘I support CND because I believe Trident is immoral and a waste of money and that nuclear energy is a waste of time when we could be moving towards renewable energy. I also believe world leaders must make negotiations their plan A instead of threats and war.’
