From 13 – 25 July, there will be an international peace camp at USAF Lakenheath to protest against the plan to bring US nuclear weapons there. The camp is being organised by over a dozen groups in the Lakenheath Alliance for Peace (LAP).

LAP was launched on 26 March when eight women including Angie Zelter ‘crossed the line’ onto base territory at USAF Lakenheath, insisting on delivering a letter to the base commanders.

After almost an hour, the RAF commander of the base, squadron leader Stewart Geary, came out, read the letter and promised to pass it on to the US base commanders.

The action will start on 13 July with a walk/bike ride from Norwich town hall to Lakenheath, with the camp starting officially on 15 July. There will be inside accommodation as well as camping nearby.
