“From Greenham to the Nobel Peace Prize”, Presentation by Rebecca Johnson

PresentationSlide1

Dr Johnson’s January 2019 presentation at the newly opened Greenham Common Museum in the Air Traffic Control Tower of the former nuclear base where ground launched cruise missiles were deployed from 1983 until they were banned and eliminated under the 1987 INF Treaty. Dr Johnson, who occupied this tower in December 1983, lived at the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp from 1982-87 and in 2017 shared the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to ICAN for the campaigning that led to the 2017 Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Here she provides some personal reflections on her life of feminist peace activism, from the INF Treaty to the Nuclear Prohibition Treaty, via Cruisewatch, the Aldermaston Women’s Peace Camp(aign), the CTBT, Women in Black and Faslane 365.
