Extra bright light!

Tony Hill, Sheffield

ImageI have just read the article by Penny Stone in the December–January issue of Peace News. I have been a member of CND since 1957. I am an Aldermaston veteran and I have been on countless marches, demos and protests down the years.

I find Penny’s words very inspiring. Here are my thoughts on the current peace/war capitalism situation.

When I became a member of CND in 1957, there was no light at the end of the tunnel. In fact, there was a pitch black gloom, and I had no thought that in my lifetime things would change. But me and countless others just kept on keeping on.

Fast forward to 2017.

The light at the end of the tunnel is now shining very bright and I am very confident that we will see the end of the prospect of nuclear and conventional war and the end of the root cause of war, which is greed created by capitalism, within the next 20 years.

Therefore my comment is humanity arise and forward to a world of peace!
