The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament was founded in 1957 in the wake of widespread fear of nuclear conflict and the effects of nuclear tests. CND has organised an annual march to the Atomic Weapons Establishment at Aldermaston, Berkshire since 1958.
CND experienced a surge in popularity in the early 1980s. This development was actively countered by the deep state. Opposition included illegal wiretapping of the leadership by MI5 and 'dirty tricks' organised by groups such as Winston Churchill II's Campaign for Peace Through Freedom.
