BROUGHTON ARCHIPELAGO – Activist Alexandra Morton is issuing a mayday alert for wild salmon on May 1 in Victoria, the day before the federal election.

BROUGHTON ARCHIPELAGO – Activist Alexandra Morton is issuing a mayday alert for wild salmon on May 1 in Victoria, the day before the federal election.

Morton is travelling to B.C. communities prior to the election asking candidates if they would remove fish farms from B.C. waters if they are elected, said Morton in a press release last week.

Morton’s campaign trail will culminate in a gathering in Victoria on May 1, but the mayday activities will continue through the month.

Mayday for Wild Salmon will also feature a Mother’s Day blessing May 8, a Global Day of Action May 17, visits to the Cohen Inquiry, legal interventions, flotilla protests, swims around salmon farms, and celebrations to honour coastal communities on the front line and the guardians of the spawning grounds, said  Morton.

“Salmon Are Sacred is calling on the Wild Salmon People to join digitally and in person in protecting wild salmon,” said Morton. “Join us in an intervention.  We will be issuing mayday alerts for wild salmon and serving legal notice that the salmon feedlots have to get out of B.C.’s waters.”

Interventions including citizen’s arrests, private prosecutions, legal action and peaceful demonstrations will take place against the provincial and federal government, as well as the fish farm companies, said Morton.  The first intervention will take place April 14 at DFO’s office in Vancouver.
