Future Wars : The Impact of New Technologies

Posted: 31st October 2018

  • Free CND public conference – open to all
  • 10th November, 9:30am-5pm
  • Birkbeck University of London, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7HX
We are living in increasingly dangerous times – most recently with President Trump’s announcement of US withdrawal from the INF Treaty. This opens the door to massive nuclear proliferation. At the same time, new technologies are emerging, rapidly transforming warfare; billions of dollars are being spent on a new hi-tech arms race. It’s already big news and the public is awakening to the serious consequences.
Space is being militarised, warfare is conducted online, and killer robots and drones carry out secretive wars via artificial intelligence and remote control. How do we organise to stop this new and uncontrolled wave of weapons and war?

Join CND and a host of expert speakers to discuss these issues at our public conference ‘Future Wars: The Impact of New Technologies’.

INF Treaty: Take action now

President Trump has announced plans to withdraw the US from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). This is a hugely destabilising development that threatens global and – in particular – European security. Tearing up the INF Treaty will end the restraints on nuclear arsenals achieved in the 1980s. It will open the way for the return of cruise-type missiles to Europe: they have only one purpose – that a US nuclear war against Russia will be fought in Europe.

CND condemns the Defence Secretary’s support for Trump’s action and calls on our government to express strong opposition to this dangerous move. This week an urgent question was asked in Parliament and EDM 1744 was tabled on this crucial issue. Now we’re following this up and mobilising MPs to press the government to respond. Can you help us?

Our protests brought the INF Treaty into being and our movement must fight to defend it. We must revitalise, rebuild and mobilise to stop this drive towards nuclear war. We thank you as a member for your ongoing support.
