DAY TWO OF THE GREENHAM MARCH LEAVES NEWPORT!
Today our marvellous marchers began the most lengthy section of the march, a 16 mile route from Newport to Chepstow, which will be followed by a 17 miler tomorrow. More than ever they need encouragement to help them along this historic route. Please tweet, message, facebook or shout your support from the rooftops as they march past. The starting point today was Presbyterian Church Of Wales, now known as the Community House. You can watch all stages of this march in real-time, and track the marchers making their way along the course by looking at our live-map page. Todays march was expected to take around eight hours and our weary but proud participants were reaching their destination, Chepstow Riverside Bandstand at around 7pm this evening. From 7-8.30 a powerful and thought provoking 'Weaving the Web/inars: Greenham 40th: Feminist disarmament and treaty-building.' was broadcast bringing a close to todays proceedings. Among the aching feet and the smiling faces there was a glass or two of well deserved wine, celebrating the fantastic achievements of all involved.
