Awel Irene writes: As the sun set on Caernarfon castle, a symbol of centuries of militarism and oppression, eight of us unpacked a van that arrived from faraway London to launch the CND Symbol tour. We put together the jigsawed symbol to celebrate 60 years of protest against nuclear weapons. We remembered the hundreds of people who have gathered in that square rallying and wearing CND badges, including Dilys O’Brien Owen who died in February shortly before her 103rd birthday after a life of witnessing for peace.
