Annie went to drama college then travelled for a while with her girlfriend. In 1984 they decided to visit Greenham for a night and she remembers the police unzipping their tent and saying “We’re coming in to rape you.”

After that comment Annie felt she “wanted to do something” so her and her girlfriend came back to Greenham and stayed at Blue Gate.

Annie is bursting with anecdotes about actions, big and small, how painful it was sometimes to be non-violent in the face of a frustrated and angry police and military, the experience of court, prison and day to day camp life.

Annie was interviewed by Rebecca Mordan in 2019.
