John Mead, one of Greenpeace's main international action organizers and climbers.

With permission from Greenpeace we present this section.

We talk to John about what its like to do a Greenpeace direct action, what Green peace is up to at the moment, and the funnier side of being in some of Greenpeace's daring actions. John is also an exceptional photographer, and we have an exhibition of some of his photographs in this section as well. Of course there is a link to the Greenpeace site here too.

Himylan Photo Gallery
As well as being an organiser and climber for Greenpeace, John is an exceptional photographer. Here we present a gallery of stunning photographs of the Himylas and the people living there, which John has taken on his frequent visits to the area.
