CND details
66 years ago today an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Tens of thousands of civilians were killed instantly and hundreds of thousands more were condemned to a slow death from burns, radiation poisoning and other injuries. On 9th August 1945 a further bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.

I am writing to ask if you can make a donation of £12 to CND in memory of the victims of the 1945 nuclear attacks, a memory made even more distressing by the ongoing struggle in Japan to bring the Fukushima nuclear power station under control. We need to raise £35,000 for our campaign - the next few months are crucial.

Unlike in other nuclear armed states the future of the UK's arsenal hangs in the balance. It has not been agreed and we do not have the money to pay for it even if it was. Replacing Trident flies in the face of our international treaty requirements, ignores the majority of the British public and squanders well over £100 billion that would be better spent on virtually anything other than weapons of mass destruction.

I have put a letter from from Yayoi (a friend of CND's from the Japanese peace movement) on our website, to give you an insight into their work and their support for our campaign in the UK. Please make a donation to help us print posters and leaflets, to commission reports, to call public meetings, to lobby Parliament, to finally get Trident scrapped for good; providing a blueprint for the world to follow. We owe it to the people of Japan, and the world, to take this opportunity.

CND embodies the campaign against the savage stupidity of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or rather you, I and the tens of thousands of other CND supporters do. And we are succeeding. However bloody-minded the government's rhetoric on Trident may sound, it is not certain to be replaced. The decision has been delayed until 2016 and a committee has been established to review the "costs, feasibility and credibility" of an alternative system.

Please make a donation if you can. £12 could pay to print 150 copies of our new leaflet on radioactivity. The server we use to let our supporters send campaigning emails (e.g. to Defence Minister Nick Harvey) costs £20/month. £40 could pay for briefings on Trident for 20 Labour MPs ahead of the upcoming policy review.

We are so grateful for every donation, however large or small.

Yours sincerely,
Kate

P.S. Please donate today if you can, the government is looking at alternatives to replacing Trident RIGHT NOW. We need to make sure they consider the one sane option: total abolition.
