Today in 1983: Women tag a U.S. warplane with anti-nuclear graffiti at Greenham Common, an air base in England.
The Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp had been set up just outside the perimeter of the base in 1981 to get U.S. Cruise missiles, some of which were deployed at the base, out of their country.
