Salish Sea Day of Action, Saturday, September 15

From 350 Seattle

On Saturday, September 15, 2018 concerned community members will gather around the region to celebrate our interdependence with the Salish Sea. Currently at profound risk from multiple fossil fuel projects, existing pollution, warming waters, and ocean acidification, the Salish Sea is experiencing plummeting salmon populations and starving orcas — so from Vancouver BC to Olympia WA, 30 actions on both sides of the border will advocate for protection for the bioregion.

In Shoreline, Pagans, Witches, Earth-Based Ceremony, Salish Sea Day of Action Dancing, drumming and ceremony to send love to the Salish Sea. Richmond Beach Saltwater Park, 2021 NW 190th St, Shoreline 98177 11am – 3pm.

“In the 163 years that settlers have occupied this land, we have seen the nearly complete decimation of land and sea creatures in the Salish Sea bioregion. Those most affected are the killer whales and salmon-- who are an indicator the health of all the other species. 
"Fossil fuel projects and corporations of all kinds contribute to pollution, to climate change and ocean acidification. Our own sewers empty into the water, along with pesticides and fertilizers. What we do to the water, we do to the land, we do to the people,” says Pamela Cəlálakəm Bond, (Snohomish).

“What concerns me about what is going on right now with the Coast Salish sea is the same thing that has been concerning my people for hundreds of years. It is the disrespect, the utter and complete lack of respect for our brothers and sisters in the sea and for the sea itself. They see it as something disposable,” adds Kayah George, Tsleil-Waututh First Nations member.
