Postcard “Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp”

‘The Common Cause, Photograph by Ed Barber, 5 October 1982

This postcard, created by Leeds Postcards in 1983, depicts an activist from the Greenham Common Women’s peace camp obstructing military forces and police from entering at the main gates. The creation of Greenham common was undoubtedly a historic event both for the women’s liberation movement and the campaign for nuclear disarmament.
