September 8th, 2018 – Community Outreach & Postering

This Saturday is the International Day of Action. Come out and join us for some postering to support the Wild Salmon Caravan and to draw attention to issues that impact wild salmon populations.

We will meet at the Roundhouse Community Center and make our way up to the Vancouver Art Gallery to attend the Rise for Climate rally and march.

Lets show our commitment to the protection of wild salmon and come together as a community to demand climate justice and celebrate the court win against the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

EXPRESSIONS OF GRATITUDE

PUBLIC ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

We would like to publicly acknowledge and express our deepest gratitude and appreciation for the communities of support that gave, so freely, countless hours of time, energy and a wealth of ideas for the planning of programs and logistical coordination for the Wild Salmon Caravan 2018.

We are especially grateful for the ancestral guidance, teachings, and the generous hospitality that was extended as we travelled through 5 Coast and Interior Salish communities in the unceded ancestral territories from the Salish Seas Corridor on our way to the Adams River/Little Shuswap Lake.

We would like to make a special mention to our funders from the First Nations Health Authority, Heritage Canada 150+, Vancouver Parks Board, Vancity, BC Teachers Federation, Brewster Kneen and all the other individuals who donated to our crowdfunding campaign.

The journey was a beautiful expression of tribal values where peoples of all cultures came together to show the world how important and inspiring wild salmon are to our land and food system. We apologize in advance for any names we may have missed in our public acknowledgement and would like to say a special thank you to the many volunteers who showed up so humbly in anonymity to be of service in this rapidly expanding social movement.

The huge response and success of the WSC could not have happened without the financial, technical, human, and in-kind support provided by the many individuals and organizations listed below. Read More
