The Radicals Film Pacific Rim Tour Recap

On his 60th birthday at the film screening on the tour, it was awesome to hear Chief Willie Moon discuss the recent legal challenges launched by his Nation against the federal and provincial governments for the fish farms in Dzawada’enuxw territory that continue to operate with no consent. Thanks to the Beyond Boarding crew Tamo, Jasper, and Carissa for bringing The Radicals Film to the Pacific Rim and the community protectors in the film who attended and shared their stories Karissa, Florence, Sherry, and Willie as well as Ora and the musicians who supported and to the 200+ people who attended screenings in the Tla-o-qui-aht, Tofino, Ahousaht, and Ucluelet communities. Friends of Clayoquot Sound are stoked to help organize the film screenings in solidarity!

The Dzawada’enuxw First Nation has never given consent to the fish farms operating in their territory near Kingcome Inlet. They have provided evictions notices to the industry, conducted ceremony, and occupied fish farm infrastructure to remove the fish farms from the their territory. Now they have 3 legal actions asserting their title and rights against the federal and provincial governments to remove the unwanted fish farms. Just weeks ago, the Federal Court ruled that Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s policy on PRV (Piscine Orthoreovirus, rampant in fish farms) poses an illegal threat to wild salmon. Change is coming.
