Je suis une journaliste indépendante formée par le travail de terrain des luttes alternatives et radicales. J'ai travaillé collectivement durant la dernière année et je me remets à produire seule certains photoreportages d'événements et enregistrements vidéo de conférences. Je suis préoccupéEs par la défense de la terre et de sa biodiversité ainsi que par la protection et la création de modes de vie soutenables tout comme de relations égalitaires entre les humainEs. Je couvre principalement des événements anticolonialistes, féministes et/ou antispécistes. (Photo du profil prise par Guillaum Gibault, photographe naturaliste)
