Episode 19 In The Disarming Grandmothers Of The UK Documentary Series: "By Confronting Our Government"

August 2, 2012

The Women’s Peace Camp: Since 1994


Anne and Helen reveal more about camp life, from living under canvas and the responses they get from the public to their (not so covert) operations to break into Menwith Hill.  Whilst living outdoors presents certain challenges it becomes clear that the social element of mixing with like minded individuals across the generations, makes up for any discomfort these grandmothers may endure.  Luckily in this windy lay by, just outside Menwith Hill, the police are also on hand to check they survive the elements to protest another day.


Find out more about Menwith Hill by watching episode 3 in the Opening Trilogy

Helen with Claire, the Documentary Filmmaker
