Greenham Common fence

Greenham Common women's protest 1982, decorating the fence
As part of the 'Embrace the Base' protest by 30,000 women in December 1982, participants covered the USAF base perimeter fence with a variety of things that held significance for them: clothes and other personal items, family photographs, poems and expressions of opinion, in order to highlight the contrast between the death-dealing weaponry inside and the life-enhancement represented outside.

Thanks David
