I have been involved in social justice struggles in Latin America going back over ten years - beginning through connections to the Latin America Solidarity Centre in Dublin. Over that time, I’ve worked and volunteered with grassroots groups in Guatemala, Colombia and Bolivia on issues relating to environmental justice, indigenous rights, food sovereignty and grassroots alternative building. My path to becoming politically active was a winding one, beginning like many young Irish people, by studying our own ongoing processes of de-colonisation - including the many parallels with Latin America. I’ve been at the Center now since 2012. Personal interests include urban agriculture; traditional (Bolivian and Irish) music; permaculture; yoga-meditation; modern dance & dance therapy.
