Clayre spent a summer in the mid 80s there with a group of friends. She shared baths, broke into the base, cut through wire, sang, did workshops, learned crafts, got arrested, and was part of Cruise Watch.

She remembers a fantastic community.

“We have to stop reinventing causes every time. We must try to learn from each other and not think we are doing things for the first time. There is this wave that just grows and grows and keeps growing – we musn’t let it die, otherwise we have to start again.”

Clayre was interviewed by Leslie Lyle in London in 2019.
