Suma was one of thousands of women who visited Greenham for Embrace the Base, with her newly formed chanting group, Prana.
Her stories show how Greenham sat within a wider landscape of social change and the flourishing of subculture. She herself lived in a tipi and tells stories of travellers and people living on the land – and how she inadvertently became part of the peace convoy in the 1980s. She speaks about the process of discovering spirituality as her form of activism and how spiritual practices and connection with the earth have become increasingly recognised and embedded within activist movements.
Suma speaks about the evolution of feminism as an organic unfolding – from a raw and justified anger towards a more holistic approach – and discovers the far-reaching implications of Greenham for the wider feminist movement.
Suma was interviewed by Josie Argyle in December 2021.
