@ Busboys and Poets Takoma: Peter Willcox - Greenpeace Captain: My Adventures in Protecting the Future of Our Planet

Monday, April 25, 2016 - 6:30pm to 7:00pm

As a young man, Willcox sailed with folk music legend Pete Seeger. For the last thirty-plus years, he’s sailed for Greenpeace. The organization’s most experienced captain, Willcox recounts some of the many adventures of his decades at sea, from encounters with smugglers, gun-runners and Al-Quaeda, to the 2013 incident when the Russian Coast Guard refused to let the Arctic Sunrise proceed through the Kara Sea as the Greenpeace ship protested near a Gazprom oil rig to raise awareness of the threat of oil drilling and climate change.

Willcox will be in conversation with Annie Leonard, Executive Director of Greenpeace USA.
