Greenham: 20 Years On
In August, it is the 20th anniversary of the day
when women left Cardiff (Wales) to walk to Greenham Common
airbase to protest against the plans to base US nuclear
cruise missiles there. We are currently discussing the
various ideas to mark the day with women in Britain, with a
view to possibly organising something here.
If you were at
Greenham or involved with the Aldermaston Women's Peace Camp
and are interested in discussing possibilities for doing
something here in Aotearoa, could you please get in touch
with me here at the PMA office. Also, anyone receiving this
who knows of any women who were at Greenham or Aldermaston,
can you please pass this message on to them.

Gordon Campbell: On The Eruption And Tourism Safety
Adventure tourism is a central theme in New Zealand tourism, and by definition, adventure always includes a certain level of risk. That said, New Zealand itself is also at risk of being seen as a tourism destination where commercial factors – rather than safety factors – are routinely allowed to determine the point where the boundary line of acceptable risk is being drawn.
