PETER WILLCOX : RAINBOW CAPTAIN
‘Peter Willcox is a hero of our times. He has been at the frontline of non-violent direct action for four decades, and put his body on the line to defend our planet. Our fragile environment needs more people like him.’ Caroline Lucas, MP
Peter Willcox has been a Captain with Greenpeace for over 30 years, making him the most experienced captain in the organization. An activist for nearly his entire life, beginning by marching behind Martin Luther King Jr. with his family at age twelve. Captain Willcox estimates he’s sailed over 300,000 miles in virtually every corner of the globe.
His new book, Greenpeace Captain, is an adventure story like no other, covering 40 years of activism and making headlines worldwide.
Leading crews into battle against whale killers, nuclear testing sites and deep sea drillers, confronting naval ships, being bombed by the French secret service and serving time in a Russian jail for peacefully protesting Russian oil drilling in Antarctica… it’s all in a day’s work for Peter Willcox, one of Greenpeace’s most seasoned campaigners.
