Scanathon: Greenham Common Women's Peace Movement 

Short url:

 Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp (1981-2000) was a historic protest camp established by women to oppose the presence of nuclear weapons at RAF Greenham Common, in Berkshire, England. The camp played a vital role in the women’s peace movement, showing the power of collective action and civil disobedience in advocating for nuclear disarmament and demilitarisation .
The collection documents opposition to the American Cruise missiles as well as covers key events such as International Women’s Day for Disarmament and Reject the Base. The collection also has materials from associated groups that supported the GCWPC, including Women for Life on Earth, The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, and community organisations from South-West England and Wales.
The scanathon is part of the For Peace! project at MayDay Rooms, more details here
