Common Ground

Apr 19, 2023

It’s now more than 40 years since Embrace the Base when 30,000 women joined hands around the perimeter fence of RAF Greenham in Berkshire to protest against the siting of American nuclear weapons on the Common.

On a freezing weekend last December, many of those who’d taken part in that historic protest, reunited at the nearby Aldermaston Women’s Peace Camp for two days of celebration, recalling their epic achievements, discussing new campaigns and having fun! In this episode we hear from just some of those pioneers, including some who started the original camp at Aldermaston and younger women who are fascinated by the Greenham women's campaigning spirit.
