CND vs TfL

News in Brief

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) won a victory over Transport for London (TfL) at the end of March.

CND had asked to put up an advert on London’s public transport system, which is run by TfL, in late 2021. It shows a nuclear weapon broken in two by the peace symbol and asks: ‘Why are we getting more nuclear weapons? We could be investing in healthcare, renewable energy, education.’

TfL refused at first, saying the ad is ‘party political’, but has now been forced (by the threat of legal action) to admit that it isn’t.
