It was organized by me and a group of feminists who were also climate activists.” Other people seen in the video are Gay Bell, Anne Quigley, Ellen Quigley, Jacqueline Frewin, Pat Smith, and Maureen Sanderson. Gay Bell writes in an article titled “Witches ANT: Anti-nuclear guerilla theatre” on page 7 of the October/November 1979 issue of UPSTREAM that the guerilla theater section of Women Against Nuclear Power called Witches ANT is putting on a play called “Sizzle City: Women’s Nuclear Reactions”.
