Dozens of demonstrators gathered for a counter-summit at Cardiff's County Hall on Sunday in protest of the upcoming NATO talks.

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament helped organise the counter-summit which included talks from political dissidents and peace activists.

Reiner Braun, a scholar from the German Peace Movement said that the aim of NATO since 1991 has been to "get all of the countries at the Russian border into the NATO boat" and to "make a new border around Russia."

The 2014 NATO summit will take place in Newport Wales, on September 4 and 5, and will see more than 150 heads of state and ministers in attendance.
