BFI London Film Festival Talk – Protest & Revolution Panel

Young activists join us for a conversation with some of the women who took part in the Greenham Common peace camp forty years ago. Mothers of the Revolution (in LFF 2021 Journey Strand) tells the story of a group of women who opposed the siting of cruise missiles in the UK and set up the Greenham women’s peace camp, the biggest female-led protest since women’s suffrage. Forty years on, young activists who are standing up to fight for the issues of their time – climate, race and inequality of all kinds – join us for a conversation with some of the women who took part in the peace camp to discuss their experience of Greenham Common, connecting the #MeToo generation with the women who paved their way.
