EPISODE FOUR: FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL PROTECTION

Sylvia and I take a walk around the perimeter of Menwith Hill and find ourselves accused of forming an unlicensed procession!  Coinciding with a small organised CND demonstration at the entrance to the base, our walk took the police’s interest as being potential ‘splinter group’ activity.  This episode serves as an example to the everyday erosion of basic civil liberties which peace campaigners, in particular, find themselves regularly challenging.
