This is an invitation to all nations; to water protectors and salmon defenders, indigenous and non-indigenous alike, to join us on Thursday, November 2nd from 11:00AM-1:00PM on the lawn of the Legislature. We invite you to join the circle and share in ceremony, speech and song and help carry the message brought here by representatives of Kwakwaka'wakw nations: FISH FARMS OUT NOW!


On behalf of Fish Farms Out Now!, an ad-hoc group of concerned community members,we respectfully request whatever forms of support you are able to provide. This could include attending the action on the 2nd, sharing details of the event with your friends, family, and extended networks, and contributing funds to help cover travel and event-related expenses.

This event is the result of a grassroots mobilization of people in support of indigenous resurgence, the survival of wild salmon, and the long work towards decolonization. For more information on the fish farm occupations, and the ongoing crisis in salmon returns, visit the following links:
