Talks and exhibition at City Hall in Bristol

During February, City Hall in Bristol are hosting the Mayors for Peace exhibition 50 Cities 50 Traces, marking 50 years since the signing of the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

To coincide with this, Bristol CND are calling on Mayor Rees and the city of Bristol to sign up to the nuclear ban communities initiative. Do please write or email to encourage Mayor Rees to sign up - we've provided a model letter here which you could simply copy, or use for ideas. 

As part of the exhibition there will be a series of lunch time talks held in the Vestibules of City Hall on ‘Peace in Action’.  Three that may be of interest to you are:


Monday 10th February, 12.30pm
Achieving a nuclear weapon-free world - Bill Braddick, Bristol CND
Opposition by concerned citizens to the development of nuclear weapons predates their use on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Since then there have been many campaigns and initiatives towards establishing a nuclear weapon-free world and much has been achieved. This brief talk will consider some of the lessons learned from past successes and how that ‘best practice’ may be applied in present and future campaigning.


Thursday 13th February, 12.30pm
Iran -  Bristol Stop the War

Monday 24th February, 12.30pm
Stories from Hiroshima and Nagasaki - Hannah Tweddell, Bristol CND
Hannah attended the World Conference for the elimination of nuclear weapons held every year in Japan in the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  This talk will share stories from the conference and the cities including from Hibakusha  (nuclear survivors), as well as ideas for what individuals can do to create nuclear disarmament at a city level.

Campaigning Activities

Remembering Hiroshima and Nagaski - Bristol says “Never Again” 17.00, Friday 9th August

The Peace Grove in Castle Park BS1 3XD.

Gather at the Japanese White Cherry tree we planted in 2015 the Peace Grove, in Castle Park, to mark the 70th anniversary of the bombings. We have invited speakers and a statement from the Mayor of Hiroshima will be read out. Bristol’s Red Notes Choir have agreed to come and sing, starting at 18.00. Please bring along anything appropriate that you would like to read aloud.

This will be Bristol’s main act of remembrance, but there will also be a brief quiet vigil at the cherry tree in Castle Park on Tuesday 6th August at 17.00, Hiroshima Day.

UN adopts global nuclear weapons ban - but where is the UK government?

In 2017 123 countries adopted a historic international treaty banning nuclear weapons. The majority of countries want to take the necessary steps to create a nuclear free world. We have united before to ban biological and chemical weapons, land mines and cluster bombs, and now it's time to ban nuclear weapons.

 In 2016, despite a UK policy to support multilateral nuclear disarmament, the UK voted against the negotiations taking place; actively seeking to encourage other countries to also vote against.  The UK Government his now boycotting the process.

Call on the Government to sign the ban treaty - sign the citizen's treaty
