Neil Pike has lived in Nimbin in Australia for over 30 years. Nimbin is the home of the Aquarius Festival. He was pictured in an award winning photograph being dragged down the hill by cops after protesting in Terania Creek to save the iconic forests found there. These protests were seen to kick off conservationist movements in forests around Australia as they managed to save the forest. He also played in a band called Secret Society which was later called Pagan Love Society and developed a following in Byron Bay. he still calls Nimbin home and lives in the forest.
