 Deng Xiaoping, Leader Who Turned China Toward Capitalism
Arms production stopped in many factories and military modernization was deferred, except for strategic weapons to maintain China's nuclear deterrent.
But when Wei Jingsheng and his Democracy Wall colleagues turned their criticism on Deng, the Chinese leader smashed the movement and persecuted its intellectual leaders.
Deng told the military that the threat of world war was receding and, therefore, the military would have to serve the civilian economy.

 President Reagan, Nuclear War, and the Global Crusade against Soviet Communism in the 1980s
Soon their anti-nuclear movement began to be called the Freeze movement.

 Institute for Anarchist Studies - Anarchism's Promise for Anti-Capitalist Resistance
Bookchin's unearthing of the affinity group model in his research on the Spanish anarchists, sketched in his Post-Scarcity Anarchism (1971), was influential to the anti-nuclear movement of the 1970s and 1980s in the United States.
This means that anarchism's principles along with its culture and forms of organization are, for the first time, at the forefront rather than margins of a transnational social movement.
This is not to say that anarchism or anarchists alone are responsible for the movement(s) contesting globalization's brutal side, that such a movement(s) started in Seattle, or even that the goal is to turn everyone into anarchists.

 FrontPage magazine.com :: Orwellian 'Peace' Movement by David Harsanyi
Its aim is "the abolition of nuclear weapons" and to initiate something called a "peace-oriented economy." In case you were confused, they mean US unilateral abolition of nuclear weapons and capitalism is not the brand of "peace-oriented economy" they had in mind.

 Behind the Headlines
he movement consisted not only of pacifists, such as A. Muste and the Quakers, but also anti-Communist liberals of the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy, anti-Stalinist leftists, and the remnants of the fellow-traveling milieu represented by such groups as the U.S. Peace Council.
For those too young to have lived through the sixties – or even the cold war with the Soviet Union – this was once a mighty movement of millions, whose members were convinced that nuclear apocalypse was all but inevitable.
The Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy (SANE), made up of the kind of liberal Democrats who were active in Americans for Democratic Action (ADA), wouldn't touch the issue.

 Education and the environmental movement
The environmental movement had made such concerns socially legitimate, whereas opposition on issues such as proliferation of nuclear weapons or centralisation of political power did not have the same social resonance.
The anti-uranium movement, a much more radical movement itself within the wider environmental movement, has not been subject to this problem to a great extent, but I know of two cases in which paid workers in Australian environmental or consumer organisations have been dismissed because of their radical stands.
This was one of the strengths of the anti-uranium movement for many years: community activists and labour movement activists supported each other and exchanged invaluable information and campaigning suggestions.

 GSD: L. Adkin
The NSMs challenge the neutrality, the authority, and the rationality of bureaucratic and technocratic decision-making, as in the case of the anti-nuclear movement in France.
That is, for radical elements within the alternative movements, such questions, and the "thinking" of alternatives, are their raison d'être, whereas for the unions, challenging the institutional rules or the logic of growth have not been priorities, if at all part of the conceptualisation of their role.
A social movement is a very complex process - with a multiple time/space perspective - of empowerment and alternative problem-solving which assigns the finality of maximising the possibility of choices on all levels and in every aspect of social life, and creates this possibility by its capacity to engender new (multiple) options....

 nuclear disarmament wayne hall spectrezine 5th july 2003
The INF Treaty was billed as the first step in a process to culminate in universal nuclear disarmament, but what anti-nuclear activists were really celebrating was the demise of the World Peace Council, the old-style-Communist peace movement which insisted on having a single rule for both Soviet and American nuclear weapons.
Henceforth two standards were being applied: American nuclear weapons were to be judged by one set of criteria.
I became a member of the non-aligned European peace movement from the early eighties onward, and this was the central plank of our politics.

For a mathematician by profession it was his speech as president of the Royal Society in London criticising the nuclear weapons, it won him accolades and he got associated with the Pugwash movement.
For him the recipe to stem the tide of nuclear weapons was to have an effective verification and control mechanism that cheeks the spread of nuclear weapons.
According to him there is also a concern about the escalation of hostilities between the two countries that may spark a nuclear conflict in South Asia.

 Oxford Research Group - The Human Face of Political Dissent
This is the same social profile that is seen as the core social base for activists in the 'new politics' movements such as the more radical forms of environmentalism, feminism and the peace movement of the 1980s.
This, combined with the lessons of the 2001 General Election, when many traditional Labour voters stayed at home, may give Labour leaders cause for concern if the numbers who were present on February 15th represent a wider and continuing current of anti-war dissent on the left.
In contrast to the 1980s large peace demonstrations, political parties and trade unions seem to play a much smaller role, perhaps reflecting the decline in the significance of the day-to-day work of large-scale organisations in securing mass mobilizations.

The September 24 Washington rally referred to above is co-sponsored by International ANSWER, which along with “Stop the War in Iraq” offers these slogans: “Support the Palestinian People’s Right of Return,”  “U.S. out of the Philippines,” and “U.S. out of Puerto Rico.”  (Somehow help for Darfur is missing. That must not be anti-imperialist enough.)
