THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN POSTPONED
A unique event discussing law and protest by leading protest practitioners
and hosted by Doughty Street Chambers London.
This event aims to leave you inspired by protest, by providing an overview
of the state of protest law, and mapping the changing nature of policing
protest from Greenham Common to Extinction Rebellion.
The event is combined with my COMMON PEOPLE photography exhibition
which is currently on show in the Doughty Street Chambers private gallery
and will form a visual backdrop to the evening.
If you would like to attend the talk on Thursday 26th March, please message

I am pleased to announce that my COMMON PEOPLE photography exhibition
will be opening at the Greenham Common Control Tower on Sunday
9th December 2018 and will run for three months until 9th March 2019.
All the photography on show was taken at Greenham Common Peace Camp
during the mid-1980s whilst I was a photography student at Salisbury
College of Art.
Many thanks to Meg Thomas and the trustees of The Tower for inviting
me to exhibit my work in their new gallery space. All photography is
for sale, together with an exhibition poster and postcards.
If you would like to attend the launch event, especially if you were
at the Peace Camp during the 1980s, please DM me via the contact form

Women protestors at Greenham Common Peace Camp 1985.
As a photography student I stayed at the camp, documenting life around
the campfire as part of my final year project. I was only
there a few weeks, but in that time I experienced daily evictions,
slept in makeshift tents in sub-zero temperatures, had bricks thrown
at me, and witnessed at first hand the enormity of a cruise missile
convoy. The camp was disbanded two years later when, as a result of
the women's protest, the cruise missiles were removed.
Greenham women, like many other women's protest groups, followed on
from the legacy left to them by the Women's Suffrage Movement. After
years of protesting the suffragettes finally achieved their ambition
in obtaining votes for women on the 6th February 1918, one hundred
years ago today.
