In 1981, America planned to base cruise missiles at Greenham Common, in response, women from all over the country set up a peace camp in protest against this move. All of the missiles were eventually moved in 1991, but someone women continued to protest for as long as 19 years.

Here is a selection of photos and literature from the protest.
