CND Plymouth tribute to Tony Benn

Tony Staunton from the Plymouth branch of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament has joined the tributes to former Labour Minister Tony Benn, who has died today

“Tony Benn will be remembered as a lifelong campaigner for peace and social justice,”

“Tony was for unilateral nuclear disarmament, and against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He offered hope and inspired us to action for human progress, equality and a better world.”

“We have lost two stalwart socialists in one week, with Tony Benn and Bob Crow’s deaths, and the Peace movement is in mourning.

But Tony Benn was the first to identify a whole new generation of young activists coming forward and ready to build a better world. He has passed on the baton for Peace.”

– Tony Staunton, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament’s General Council.
