It is with great sadness that I bring you the news that John Ainslie, co-ordinator of Scottish CND for over 25 years, passed away earlier today, Friday 21st October.
John made a remarkable contribution to Scottish CND and the wider peace movement during his lifetime.
He produced outstanding reports which made the case against nuclear weapons in a way which carried authority and respect across the political spectrum.
John ran the Scottish CND office for many years and he was a tireless organiser of events and activities all aimed at making the case for a nuclear weapons free world.
Scottish CND and the wider peace movement have today lost a massively influential figure and friend who will be sadly missed.
We are immensely grateful to John for his intellectual vigour, organisational and strategic skills, and sheer commitment he gave to our organisation over so many years.
Any condolences and messages of sympathy sent to the office will be collected and sent to John's family.
Funeral details will be publicised when arranged.
Chair of Scottish CND
