Bruce Kent will talk about his belief that the threat caused by nuclear arms did not disappear with the end of the Cold War and that people’s perceptions of nuclear arms have to be challenged, “to move to another common sense”. In response to today’s political climate he points out that “you cannot increase security by making other people feel insecure”. Bruce Kent is perhaps the country’s most prominent peace campaigner and first became involved in the peace movement in 1958, working with Pax Christi. He has been Chair of CND, President of Abolition 2000 UK and a member of Amnesty International. His tireless work has ensured his position as an internationally renowned speaker on issues centred on justice and peace.
