Tash Peterson has revealed how far she is willing to go to continue her activism.
The notorious vegan protestor has made a name for herself by staging dramatic and disruptive demonstrations in Perth and Melbourne.
She's revealed she's prepared to go to jail and won't be letting up on her rallies and protests any time soon.
Peterson was charged with disorderly conducted when she stormed into a Louis Vuitton store half naked and covered in her own blood.
She skipped passed the line of people patiently waiting outside to get in and held up a sign that said: "If you're not vegan you're an animal abuser."

Security tried to corner her and take down her large banner however she evaded them for more than two minutes while screaming about fashion industry.
Guards eventually ripped the sign in half and escorted her outside. Staff at the Louis Vuitton store returned to normal and one even joked that the protest was 'very entertaining'.
Tash explained that she used her own period blood to make a stand against the fashion industry.
When appearing in court for the demonstration, she told the magistrate she will fight the charge.
"I don't believe that I'm guilty because I'm standing up for the most oppressed beings on this planet," she said.
When asked whether she thought her form of activism would actually end up making people abandon eating meat she said yes.
"I think disruptive activism is the most powerful weapon for social change," she said. "There's no stopping until the animal holocaust ends."
Following the appearance in a WA court, she took to Instagram to say she's standing up for all the animals who are affected by the meat and dairy industry.
She wrote on a post: "I had my court appearance this morning - I will be back in court on the 5th October ... and intend to plead not guilty to both charges.
"I'm here to speak on behalf of the trillions of animals subjected to rape, enslavement, torture, abuse and murder, not to be disorderly or violent.
"Right now in this moment, the most innocent beings on this planet are experiencing the largest and longest holocaust in history."
7News revealed the activist has been funding her legal defence from the earnings on her OnlyFans page.
She reportedly has been making $40,000 per month thanks to the site that hosts primarily explicit content.
