Film Screening: Carry Greenham Home

5 March @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A film screening of “Carry Greenham Home” with guest speakers and a discussion.

Throughout history women have mobilised to protest war and violence and in 1981, the Greenham Common Peace Camp became a shining example of how non-violent feminist action can change both lives and laws. Beeban Kidron’s essential documentary – filmed while living on-site with co-director Amanda Richardson – depicts the courage, creativity and humour of Greenham’s women as they protested the storage of US nuclear cruise missiles at the RAF base. A vivid, seminal work of British feminism on film, Carry Greenham Home is a testament to the enduring message of the anti-war movement. The legacy can still be seen today.

This event is part of York International Women’s Week and a chance for women who took part in Greenham Common protest camps to share their memories, and for everyone to discuss current campaigns against nuclear weapons. Greenham Common was an exciting time for women’s protest. The legacy can still be seen today at the protests at nearby Menwith Hill and in the adoption of the UN Global Ban Treaty. Come along to find out all about this and more.

This event is open to people of all genders, but will be focussing on women’s experiences and ideas, with women being encouraged to participate. It is free (though donations are welcome), but please book a place because places are limited and may book up before the event.
