Greenham Common women's protest 1982, gathering around the base
On December 12th 1982 30,000 women of all ages, classes and ideologies travelled from all over the UK to gather at the USAF base at Greenham Common to demonstrate against the decision to hold nuclear missiles here. Some stayed on in a Peace Camp that lasted for 19 years, others returned here again and again and many more were inspired to support the peace movement in different ways. The protest is part of history now, see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
