Lindis Percy, British Quaker peace activist


This 2014 video from Britain is called My Story: Lindis Percy.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

SO WHO IS LINDIS PERCY?

Saturday 10th September 2016

Lindis Percy, who is a Quaker, became a peace activist in 1979 when US cruise missiles were installed at Greenham Common in Berkshire.

In more than 35 years as a peace campaigner she has been arrested around 500 times for her activities, mainly for incursions into US and RAF military bases.

“I say that without any pride or pleasure,” she said.

“But once you start asking questions that is what happens.”

In 2003 her picture was flashed around the world when she famously climbed the gates of Buckingham Palace, unfurling a banner in protest against a state visit by then-US president George W Bush. Ms Percy has been employed by the NHS all her working life as a nurse, midwife and health visitor.
