The Fish Farm Medicine Revival Roadshow is a rabble-rousing evening of music, film and guest speakers. The tour will feature music to rouse your inner rebel, provided by none other than the amazing Luke Wallace! The new documentary Salmon Secrets joins Clayoquot Action’s fish farm watchdog program as a team of underwater cinematographers investigates an “experimental” fish farm near Tofino. Featuring marine biologist and bestselling author Alexandra Morton, and traditional ‘Namgis Chief Ernest Alfred, who document the successful resurgence of salmon after the removal of fish farms from the Broughton Area and Discovery Islands.
The Medicine provided by this event is safe and effective. It will speed the removal of salmon farms from BC waters by 2025. It cleanses the waters, removing pests and parasites! It brings back wild salmon! And perhaps most important, it transforms anger, sadness and despair into action!
Special guests for the evening include Tla-o-qui-aht citizen, cultural educator, and artist Gisele Martin.
