A look back at the women’s anti-nuclear protest at Greenham Common.

‘It was them or us, it was make or break’ - after 19 years of struggle, indestructible women’s strength, armed with bolt cutters and legal challenges, drove US nuclear missiles and British military from Greenham Common for ever, in spite of constant arrests, jailings and evictions. Margaretta D’Arcy returns to Greenham to recount their extraordinary story. She revisits the old sites, the camp, the town of Newbury, the vanished nuclear base on the common. She talks to old companions and local residents. She sums up the spirit of Yellow Gate Women with passion and humour as she experienced it and as she remembers it today.
