THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN POSTPONED

Greenham_Common041v

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
me here.

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 on my website. Best wishes. Wendy

 

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.
