Wangari Maathai

Wangari Maathai

a Kenyan environmental and political activist.
When these resources are degraded or polluted, then there are fewer of them for the rest of us, and then we start competing for them and eventually as we compete, there are those of us, who have the capacity, who have the ability to be the controllers, to decide who accesses them, how much they access, and eventually there is a conflict. Those who feel marginalized, those who feel excluded, eventually react in an effort to get their own justice, and we have conflict.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All of us have a God in us, and that God is the spirit that unites all life, everything that is on this planet.More Wangari Maathai quotes [02/25/2008 12:02:00]
The people are learning that you cannot leave decisions only to leaders. Local groups have to create the political will for change, rather than waiting for others to do things for them. That is where positive, and sustainable, change begins.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But when you have bad governance, of course, these resources are destroyed: The forests are deforested, there is illegal logging, there is soil erosion. I got pulled deeper and deeper and saw how these issues become linked to governance, to corruption, to dictatorship.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't really know why I care so much. I just have something inside me that tells me that there is a problem, and I have got to do something about it. I think that is what I would call the God in me.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
