 The Battle of Greenham Common is Over...

"On 14 November, 1983, the first of 96 cruise missiles arrived, each carrying a warhead with the explosive power of 16 Hiroshima bombs. At the annual 'embrace the base' event the following month, 50,000 women encircled the fence. Although the missiles were removed from the base in the early nineties, a small number of women remained as part of a wider resistance to nuclear weapons. The last three left in 2000 to make way for a commemorative and historic site.   Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty -Wikipedia
