VIDEO: Alma Brooks, Maliseet grandmother, speaks on the gendered impacts of resource extraction


Gendered Impacts Symposium World Social Forum 2016
“What befalls the earth, befalls the women of the earth.
When the land and water are ravished and poisoned and destroyed, the women are deeply affected.
As Indigenous women, the connection to our homeland is not only physical, it is biological and spiritual.  
We have always been on the frontline when our traditional territories are put at risk.”

Alma Brooks, Maliseet grandmother from the St. Mary’s First Nation in New Brunswick
