Kirsty joined WDM in 2008 and was part of WDM’s successful campaigns to stop Kingsnorth and push for a strong Climate Change Act. Before this, she lived in New Zealand where she was campaigned on trade justice in the Pacific, conflict and climate change. She has also worked on women’s rights in Nicaragua, as a peace observer with Zapatista communities in Mexico, and with refugee communities in the Middle East.
