50 Years of Peace (Symbol)

Thanks to our Opinio Juris colleague, Kevin Jon Heller, for alerting us to the 50th birthday this Good Friday of the peace symbol. It made its debut when "thousands of British anti-nuclear campaigners set off from London's Trafalgar Square on a 50-mile march to the weapons factory at Aldermaston," England. Among the organizers was the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, which developed the symbol. Still in the nonproliferation fight, CND's planning a march to the same bomb factory this coming Easter Monday.
