Victoria Brittain is a journalist and writer who has spent much of her working life in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. She is a former associate foreign editor of The Guardian, and has been a consultant to the UN on the impact of conflict on children and women. She is also a patron of CND Peace Education and has previously judged the programme’s creative writing competition.

Victoria most recently supported CND at our December 2017 event outside the Ministry of Defence. She recollects; ‘One of many happy protest memories was speaking at the recent alternative Nobel Peace Prize.’ Victoria goes on; ‘For six decades CND has been the symbol of moral resistance to the deliberate forgetting of historic US war crimes in Japan in World War II. Those crimes against Japanese civilians should turn all governments towards the abolition of all nuclear weapons.’

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.
