Two top Stop Trident placards win CND competition

TWO artistic peace activists have won a competition to design a new placard for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

David Barnett and Kieran Walsh will see their distinctive designs carried through the streets of London to Downing Street today.

Their creative twists on anti-war traditions were selected by political artist Peter Kennard, who created the iconic broken missile graphic in the 1980s.

That design is on display at the Tate Gallery, while his other anti-war works are held at the Imperial War Museum.

“It’s vital that we create images for the streets that represent the global struggle against the madness of nuclear weapons,” said Mr Kennard.

“One humble handmade placard voicing the need for nuclear disarmament can have more power than a thousand corporate billboards trying to sell us what we don’t need.”
