CND and Dissident Peace Groups in Socialist Countries

This paper, authored by George Hutchinson for discussion by the CND Council, raises the question of whether the CND should be dealing only with the "official" peace groups in Warsaw Pact countries (which were controlled by the Communist government), or whether the CND should be engaging more extensively with "unofficial" peace groups run by dissidents. This debate continued within the UK peace movement throughout the 1980s.

He invites the CND to work with the Soviet Union "to further our common struggle for a nuclear-free Europe."

This Coalition for Peace through Security poster likens the British peace movement of the early 1980s to pacifist groups in the 1930s and to the policy of appeasement. The poster depicts Leonid Brezhnev, Soviet leader until his death in November 1982, addressing Hitler, thereby associating the Soviets with the threat posed by Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
