Making war history

For 15 years, local peace activist and anti-war campaigner, Chris Coverdale has dedicated his life to getting local and central government to obey and enforce the laws of war. Here, he confronts HOT readers with some of the agonising questions and dilemmas facing conscientious taxpayers and makes a heartfelt appeal to everyone – to do what they can to end war

History of peace movement in the spotlight

With conflict so often hitting the headlines, it is heartening to be reminded that over the last 100 years or so individuals, whether acting on their own or collectively, have consistently and often creatively campaigned against war and for peace. With this in mind, Ann Kramer, author of two books on conscientious objectors, went to see People Power: Fighting for Peace, an exhibition on peace campaigners at London’s Imperial War Museum.

Trident: weapon of mass destruction

This is the second of a pair of articles looking at what Trident is, what it is said to be for and what some of its supporters candidly think of its uses. The first (see link below) asked if Trident was any use for defence? This second part shows how, beyond the big powers’ nuclear club, the rest of the world is now moving towards making nuclear weapons as illegal as other weapons of mass destruction, thereby making investment in them a very poor bet. Rachel Lever writes.
