Event Description

In May of 1982, one of the very first occupy movements began quite humbly outside the perimeter fence of the US Army base in Berkshire, England. 250 women arrived to protest the installation of cruise missiles, some 34 were arrested. Less than a year later some 30,000 women ringed the facility and the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp was born. Filmmakers Beeban Kidron and Amanda Richardson went to have a look and ended up staying for seven months.

The result was the remarkable documentary called Carry Greenham Home. Since that time, occupy movements, nonviolent protests, and civil disobedience campaigns have circled the globe, employing the same tactics employed by the indomitable women of Greenham Common. The means to make change—putting fragile human bodies on the line, demanding a different type of world—continue from Tahrir Square to Wall Street.
