And the Fence Came Tumbling Down

DVD2001 10 Minutes

How the military left Greenham Common, and what had happened before that.

In April 2000 the fence finally came down round Greenham Common air base. This short film tells the story of how a US Air Force base with 96 nuclear cruise missiles came to be returned to the people after 20 years of non-violent protest and witness. Includes dramatic footage and archival material of the women's peace camps intercut with scenes of the day the fence finally came down. This informative and inspiring record shows how people power can bring about transformation.
