Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp was established in 1981 to protest nuclear weapons. It was a fight against the British government’s decision to allow cruise missiles to be based at RAF Greenham Common. What started as 36 women chained to base’s fence became 70,000 protesters forming a 14 mile human chain.
