A busy few months ahead…

 

Happy new year! 2015 looks set to be a busy one for Greater Manchester & District CND, and for us too as we begin interviewing activists who have been involved with the group and documenting events.

 

Our ideas have taken shape, and it looks like the focus of our work will be these interviews, collecting people’s personal experiences of being part of GM&D CND. We hope the film that results will give people a sense not only of the history of CND in the Greater Manchester area and the role its activists have played in national campaigns, but also a sense of the work they do now and the challenges that lie ahead. With that in mind, we are drawing up plans to interview people who can share their stories, starting with a trio of campaigners from three different generations, taking us from the birth of CND to student activism in Manchester today.

 

Documenting the work of GM&D CND today will also take us out and about in the next few weeks. We plan to joining the group on their trip to London to ‘Wrap Up Trident’ on 24 January, and will also be visiting local events. It’s shaping up to be a busy few months, as we finally stop planning and start making this project a reality.

 

This is also a good opportunity to flag up a recent article about GM&D CND, which makes a great introduction to their work – find out more here.
