Aldermaston

On Easter Friday 1958 the first CND demonstration from Aldermaston to London took place.

During the march in 1960 John Rowan took a camera with him and exposed two rolls of Kodachrome slide film.

Many people traveled from all over the country including my parents, to demonstrate against the sighting of nuclear weapons in the U.K. Not long after World War Two with Britain developing nuclear weapons, this technology was new and many people became concerned. The organisation the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament began.

Over half a century later, what are todays arguments, feelings and realities surrounding the existence of nuclear weapons and what part do ordinary people play in the production and maintenance of these systems.

I intend to research and investigate some of the people, locations, organisations and archives associated with the wider discourse surrounding the nuclear defense industry.
