This remarkable book tells how the women of the Yellow Gate peace camp at Greenham Common took on the law - and in some instances won.
They challenged the laws under which they were arrested and as Judge Hague said said in the County Court "...they are no strangers to litigation, both criminal and civil. In the courts they have sometimes had a considerable measure of success, and indeed they are immortalised in the Law Reports in connection with two of their successes in the higher courts."
This book offers inspiration and encouragement to all who take part in non-violent direct action or want to challenge the powers of the state or large institutions. In its detailed descriptions of each case, it suggests how this can be done successfully.
The last chapter tells the story of the Commemorative and Historic Site, a garden of peace where once the women of Yellow Gate camp lived and confronted the Cruise Missiles - and the powers of the state.
