a Canadian’s exploration of the impacts of her country and its mines on people in Guatemala
Rachel Small is studying environmental justice as a masters student at York University, in Toronto, Ontario. She spends much of her time working within anti-oppression movements, and, more specifically, has been engaged in activism that opposes the harmful effects and practices of the Canadian extractive industry for a number of years.
She enjoys participating in – and facilitating workshops on – creative activism projects, such as community mural-making, independent publishing, and spoken word. She co-publishes a zine called Purple Grasshopper, and some of her spoken word performances are available online on the Kitchener-Waterloo Spoken Word youtube channel.
