In April 1981, George became a paid-up member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND).

In activism related news, on 4 June 1985, George’s song “Save The World” was featured on the U.K. release of the Greenpeace album.

“George [Harrison] talks at length about the planet, his concern about destruction. Last year [19 June 1986] he participated in an anti-nuclear rally in Trafalgar Square, and he’s a member of the ecological organisation Greenpeace. ‘I love those people because they go out and actually do it. I mean, if it wasn’t me that’s the kind of thing I’d like to be, out there on a ship getting harpooned by Russians and Japanese.’” - The Sunday Tribune, 18 October 1987 [x]
