A flyer created by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), advertising the 'No To War in the Gulf' vigil outside Cardiff Castle (main gate) on Friday 11 January, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.

The vigil was followed by a candlelit procession to United Reform Church (Windsor Place) and a public meeting at 7:30pm. Speakers at the vigil included Alastair Mackie (Ex-services CND), Michele Ryan (Film-maker), Anne Knighton (Vice President CYTUN), and John Cox Vice (President CND). Chair: Rhodri Glyn Thomas. Bi-lingual flyer (Welsh on reverse side) 'Ataliwch Y Rhyfel Nawr'.

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament was established in 1958, during the fear of nuclear weapons that surrounded the aftermath of the Second World War. Membership grew fast and women only activities developed around the 1980s. The CND is still active today.
