From Our Friends at Native Fish Society
On Friday, October 23rd, Save California Salmon, the Klamath Justice Coalition, and Ancestral Guard are calling for an Un-Dam the Klamath Day of Action. This Day of Action is critical right now as the owners of the four Klamath dams that are slated for removal, PacifiCorp, and their parent company, Berkshire Hathaway, are threatening to pull out of the dam removal agreement and break their promises to Klamath River Tribes. The agreement to remove the Klamath River dams is the result of almost 20 years of scientific studies, advocacy and negotiation. During these 20 years, the Klamath has dealt with serious toxic algal blooms and salmon numbers have dwindled, threatening the West Coast fishing industry and Tribal subsistence.
Join tribal members from the Klamath River in advocating for a free-flowing Klamath River. Here’s how you can make an impact:
Join us in creating a social media/twitter storm. Make a video, post a photo, make a sign, and/or hang a banner. Use the hashtags #UnDamtheKlamath #KlamathJustice and #WarrenBuffett. Tag @WarrenBuffett, @PacifiCorp and @PacificPower, @GatesFoundation, @GavinNewsom and @OregonGovBrown. We encourage you to post and email your friends so they can support the Day of Action.
Please use your voice this week and help advocate for justice and the removal of the four Klamath River dams. With your help, we can create the groundswell of public support needed to revive the Klamath River and its wild fish.
