Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) campaigns non-violently to achieve British nuclear disarmament – to get rid of the Trident nuclear weapons system and stop its replacement. But we recognise that Britain’s nuclear weapons are only a small part of the problem, so we also campaign for a global nuclear weapons ban. Join us.
CND is funded entirely by its members and supporters. Our policies are decided upon by our annual national members’ conference, where our national leadership is also elected. We are a proud, grassroots movement comprising local groups, regions and nations, as well as specialist sections. CND works with an alliance of anti-Trident organisations, trade unions and faith communities to achieve our goal of a nuclear weapons-free world.
Dutch Socialist Party
The Dutch Socialist Party (SP) has become one of the biggest political parties in the Netherlands. As a modern socialist party, it has attracted an ever larger electorate. The party seeks to build a society based on human dignity, equivalence and solidarity. To achieve this, the party is active both inside and outside Parliament.
What is modern socialism? What kind of world do we want? How does our party manage to attract tens of thousands of active members and more than a million voters? With this website we will try to answer these questions.
The SP stands for a programme of principles, called ‘The Whole of Humanity’ (‘Heel de Mens’). It contains the core of the SP’s vision of society and the alternatives proposed by us. Our positions and activities are based on three concepts: human dignity, equivalence and solidarity. It is these values that in the course of many centuries have emerged as essential and indispensable aspects of human civilisation and progress. Human dignity, equivalance and solidarity constitute, together with our rational analysis of the world, the yardstick against which we measure developments and judge alternatives. Whatever we consider as positive from this perspective, we attempt to promote; whatever we consider as negative we try to prevent or combat.
Human dignity is the respect of one person for another, the right to decide freely the direction
society should take, a secure existence for everyone, and a fair chance for every person to live in freedom and strive for his or her own happiness.
Equivalence means that everybody counts equally. On this basis we promote tolerance throughout society and fight every form of discrimination.
Solidarity between people is necessary because the opportunities afforded to one are less than those enjoyed by another. By helping and caring for each other we can give a fair chance to everyone to lead a fulfilling life.
IALANA GerIALANA Germany – Association for Peace Law – German section of the International Association of Lawyers Against Nuclear Arms is dedicated to the strengthening of law instead of a law of the strongest. As an organization of lawyers, IALANA dwells from many experiences in non-violent conflict resolution. Sadly, in international conflicts, accepted rules of inner-state human cohabitation are quickly out of sight. Instead of prevention, negotiations or mediation voices call for the deployment of weapons. This is contrary to the Charter of the United Nations. IALANA produces expertise of international and constitutional law on areas of conflict and crisis as well as military interventions and work towards strengthening law. A very important aim of IALANA is the prevention of the use of nuclear weapons as well as the complete abolition of weapons of mass destruction.
