Anti-nuclear protestors gather in Trafalgar Square. Thousands of protesters from all sections of society gather in Trafalgar Square to begin the march from London to the nuclear base at Aldermaston in Berkshire. Crowds went to Aldermaston annually between 1958 and 1963; this second march took place between 27th and 30th of March 1959. Supported by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (C.N.D.), the crowds called for an end to the use and testing of nuclear weapons.
