English: Embracing the base, Greenham Common December 1982, near to Greenham, West Berkshire, Great Britain.

At noon on 12 December 1982, 30,000 women held hands around the six mile perimeter fence of the former USAF base, in protest against the UK government's decision to site American cruise missiles there. The installation went ahead but so did the protest - for nineteen years women maintained their presence at the Greenham Common peace camp.
