Campaigners hit back at the inclusion of peace organisations in a counter-terrorism police document, as reported in the Guardian.
Kate Hudson, CND general secretary, said:
‘Why is CND listed in a police counter-terror list? We have over 60 years of peaceful protest to our credit and an open, democratic structure and policy process. We have no secrets and act in the public interest.
‘It is nuclear bombs that terrorise people, not our campaign which works to eradicate weapons of mass destruction.
‘This is massive state overreach and threatens our right to political engagement and peaceful protest.’
