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.

Letter, Yuri Zhukov, President of the Soviet Peace Committee, to Bruce Kent

In this letter, Zhukov sets out how, from the Soviet perspective, the Soviets have been working towards peace but the deployment of Cruise and Pershing missiles in Western Europe derailed arms control talks in Geneva and has made the international situation markedly worse. He invites the CND to work with the Soviet Union "to further our common struggle for a nuclear-free Europe."
