Greenham Commons Anniversary

Today The Guardian has put up this video to mark the anniversary of a remarkable protest by British women at Greenham Commons Airbase. Here is their Readers' Digest account: "Embrace the Base: In response to a chain letter 30,000 women arrived at Greenham on December 12 1982 to 'Embrace the Base'. Linking arms, they entirely surrounded the nine miles of perimeter fence. Visit Your Greenham to view more videos and galleries." As I have noted here before, similar activities - at the "Women's Encampment for a Future of Peace & Justice" - occurred not far from where I now live at the Seneca Army Depot (Romulus, NY) during the same period.
