Gentlemen on ARRSE might like to hear what I have recently found out. Merseyside CND are holding a Global Day of Action on Military Spending in April 15th outside the Armed Forces Offices in North John Street, Liverpool from 12 noon to 2pm and have told people to "dress as a wounded soldier or carry your own message on a placard"
As usual, they look upon injured and dead servicemen and women as nothing other than to be ridiculed in their own display, much like some Muslim groups do.
Any ARRSE members up to facing up to them?

You really don't think Moscow were pulling CND's strings? Baroness Ashton questioned over CND and Soviet money - Telegraph

If you believe that the CND weren't backed by Moscow, then you might be interested in helping me shift the USD 27 million which is in the account of a person who died without any next of kin. PM me your email address and bank details.

I pay to support the Government, doesn't mean I get to tell them what to do.

It would be in the interests of the SU, or at least they would think it was, to encourage and assist anti-nuclear groups in the West; that is however a long way from saying that the SU directed CND policy or exercised day-to-day control over its activities.

I was on Salisbury Plain on Ex once when the US missile trucks were in the next wood over. Unfortunately the beardy wierdys got the wrong wood and invaded 1 Inf Bde HQ instead. Worst bit was that they spray painted the new two week 110 LRs before getting jumped on ( with 'reasonable force' though) and held until Modplod arrived.

Chunky Security pln got a bollocking for letting them get through the wire in the first place but they were most dismayed to find we weren't Yanks and they'd fucked up. One woman wouldn't stop screaming and wailing and calling us fascists until she realised we couldn't really give a fuck>

Rather than complaining and protesting about car bombs, which were a real and regular problem. A bunch of trendy lefties (not CND) decided to go off and protest what I think may have been an ROC post or bunker in NI.
What they decided to do was chain themselves to the fence. Landy turns up, sitrep and whaddawedo?
'Causing any damage'
'No'
'All chained to each other and chained to the fence'
'Yes'
'Any grief'
'Bit of shouting'
'Wrap up warm, relieved in a couple of hours'
And that's what happened until somebody found a key and somewhat shamefaced and miserable a lot of hours later they all trooped off. Only violence that day it was alleged that 'a soldier, had pulled a knife and cut off a chaps ponytail'.
Nonsense of course, who other than a complete and utter idiot would turn up at a protest in winter in NI: spend all day standing around in dungarees, sneakers shirt and jacket, chained to a fence'

Cold War Paranoia, I have no doubt that as papers get released into the public domain there will more and more of these types of stories, and I am certain that it wont just be "maggies secret war" but will have been "every post war governments secret war"

But they have to be looked at in the context of the period, and of course any gov is in a cleft stick, if the carry our survielance/infiltration and something happens then they are crucified, if the do and dont find anything naughty they are dammed for being draconian.

Not paranoia at all. CND was a Communist-front organisation funded in part by the Soviets and its members were traitors, examples of Lenin's 'useful idiots'. Treasonous filth the lot of them.

If you say so, however Stella Rimmington disagrees with you and so do the facts...............

Had one op visit to Greenham Common about 1987. It was all pretty institutionalised by then and principally a piece of theatre. The Bn then deployed near Blackball (?) Firs to secure a deployment area for the Yanks, using the Milan thermal sights and mobile patrols.

The protesters managed to halt the Pershing missile convoy by the Red House roundabout on the A303, got on to one of the TELs and cut the hydraulics on the wagon. They were arrested, but I don't remember the rest.

What? 'Facing up to' a bunch of unwashed, hairy-arsed women swathed in badly applied bandages, covered in fake blood and wearing a motley assortment of army surplus gear (which is their normal wardrobe anyway).

So, what are the options? Wade in with fists flying? Get into a nose-to-nose shouting match? Stand near them in dignified (but ambiguous) silence?

Nah, CND are a busted flush, an irrelevance, they lost their war here but they are needed in North Korea.

Funny this.
When the war ended (WW2) in Japan, nobody gave a flying fuck about the rights or wrongs of the Bomb. It was a bloody big endex, and me dad came home after being away 4 years [Drinking Italian Women and Fucking their wine so i beleave].

Everybody understood that the millions of lives that would have been lost in the ground invasion of the sons of Nippon, didn't happen and that was because the bomb had the power to stop wars. As a nine year old at the time, we all stopped being soldiers and became Enola Gay Pilots, instead, later in my national service [I actually joined up so I didn't get called up, and meant that I wouldn't get put in the Navy, which shit me a lot as I couldn't swim back then], because we were pally with the Yanks and of course we had our own weapon of choice, that meant we wouldn't have to invade the Ruskies.

CND turned up and everybody had a big row about the rights or wrongs of the Bomb, conveniently forgetting that without the Bomb, mugs like me and my mates might actually have had to get killed for the motherland [the UK in this case] invading the Ruskies.

If we Nuked Afgahn, they i don't think anybody would have to worry about Alky-Ki-Ada, nor come to think of it the zillions of Afgahn 'Asylum seekers' that have invaded the UK since.

Times change eh?

Is it true that at some CND protests, the women were so ugly (in personality as well as to the eye) some men turned gay out of shock?

If actively trying to undermine the defence of the country isn't treason, what is?

The one who gave me the green badge was very pleasant.
