"The actions of our generation will determine the fate of humanity."


Try on Simon's shoes and take a moment to see the world through his eyes. Simon's story was produced by Meri Fatin, and was collected when our A Mile in My Shoes exhibit travelled to Perth International Arts Festival, with the help of Centre for Stories.

Militant activists don't often have fans in the media and general public with many having no time for their "lawlessness".

In episode two of the Rare Air podcast, militant activist Simon Peterffy, who heads up the Forest Rescue group in WA, highlights his profound fears for the health of the planet.

He has no time for petitions and cake stalls - he is compelled to get in there and physically stop the destruction.

Simon was one of the three activists who jumped on board the Japanese whaler Shonan Maru 2 in January 2012 and were detained for over a week before being handed back to Australian authorities.

And as you'll hear, its not the only time he's put his life on the line for the sake of the planet.

Thanks to Simon for being so generous with his story.
