Combined Universities Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (195?-1968)

Histoire administrative

The Combined Universities Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CUCND) was founded in the late 1950s. In December 1964 it was succeeded by Student Union for Peace Action (SUPA) which was concerned with a wide range of social issues, not simply nuclear disarmament. SUPA's head office was in Toronto but there were branches on many university campuses in Canada. SUPA projects included work with blacks in Nova Scotia, poor whites in Kingston, Ontario, native peoples in Saskatchewan and Doukhobors of Nova Scotia, and anti-Vietnam protests and marches. By the winter of 1965 SUPA was an exhausted organization and was beginning to fall apart. From late 1965 to 1967, SUPA's role consisted mainly of supplying literature from its Research, Information and Publications Project (RIPP). SUPA was formally dissolved in September 1967 and succeeded by the New Left Committee which lasted until the summer of 1968.
