Anti Nukiller Protests During the 1970s
This is not a definitive history of the Greenpeace [ London ] group, but just small part of it.
French Nukiller Bomb Protests
During 1973 Greenpeace [ London ] organised the London to Paris march against the French nukiller bomb tests at Mururoa in the Pacific.
The march was attacked by the French CRS [ riot police ] at the boarder between Belgium and France.
Though some people did manage to cross over the boarder at other points, and took part in the Paris Protest which followed this event.
During both 1973 & 1974 the group organised many protests outside the French Embassy, and a number of die-ins too.
The group organised a number of protest marches about the French Nukiller Bomb tests during 1973 and 1974.
I spent a lot of my time upon these various protests, leafleting sessions, and organising the Greenpeace [London ] protest marches which took place during 1974.
On August the 4th 1974 the group organised a march from Hyde Park Corner to Trafalgar Square where a rally was held. It was the one and only time I ever spoke in the square.
Starting to campaign upon nukiller power
During 1974 and 1975 the group started looking at the issue of Nukiller power. which took a while to do so, as at that stage there were very few books or articles upon the dangers they pose.
It was because of the follow up work upon the import of uranium [Yellowcake] to be processed Capenhurst and Springfields that the group become of interest to the SDS spycops.
Now follow this on by looking at the spycop public inquiry.
