No AUKUS pact! No New Cold War! – Day of Action Saturday 11 December

No nuclear proliferation!
No AUKUS pact!
No New Cold War!
International Day of Action on Saturday 11 December

CND has joined with the Australian and US peace movements to draw public attention to the new AUKUS military pact between the UK, US and Australia. The deal will give Australia nuclear-powered submarines – the first non-nuclear state to get them. This is a dangerous escalation in the West’s ongoing confrontation with China that risks nuclear proliferation and breaches the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Actions and events will be planned across the country, get involved!

Contact your local CND group to find out what they have planned

Or if you would like to plan an action or an event that day yourself, get in touch with the CND office ( or 020 7700 2393).

Information from CND

The announcement of AUKUS, the military partnership between the UK, the US and Australia, is a dangerous escalation in the West’s on-going confrontation with China.
Spreading nuclear technology is at the heart of the deal: the US and UK are collaborating with Australia to provide them with nuclear-powered submarines. This risks nuclear proliferation and is a breach of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
