Directed by Dave Anderson
Davina (not her real name, but she’s real enough) tells the story of a week in her life, about being with demonstrators and inhabitants of the Peace Camp and taking part in a demonstration to block the delivery of equipment at Faslane’s nuclear weapons plant.
She talks of camaraderie, humour, the dedication of the Disarming community, COP, the warnings, the reading of the necessary procedures, the charging with law-breaking and the negotiating over her court date to accommodate her planned holidays.
