Greenpeace wants surfers and other boaters to join the flagship Rainbow Warrior on the water near Tofino in Tla-o-qui-aht Territory on the morning of October 7. Bring your boat, kayak, canoe, surfboard, paddle board or any sea-worthy vessel to join the flotilla. Let’s send a message that the people of this region love wild salmon—it’s time to get open net-pen salmon farms out of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere waters! This is a peaceful protest which will be non-confrontational.
Clayoquot Action is coordinating local logistics on behalf of Greenpeace. If you will be human-powered and would like to join a pod of similar craft for the paddle out, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Or organize with your friends. If you are planning on bringing a boat and have room for more people, please let me know. If you don’t have a boat, no problem, RSVP and we’ll get you on board one! Please wear bright clothing.
I’ll be in touch again soon with confirmation of time and location. The flotilla will take place approximately 9 to noon.
Help grow the flotilla! Forward this email to your friends. Share the FaceBook event and invite your friends to join you on the water.
