To Secwepemc the Water is Sacred, the Salmon are Sacred. The massive Mount Polley mining disaster that happened at Yuct Ne Senxiymetkwe, unceded Secwepemc Territory (near Likely, BC) will continue to impact both the water and salmon for thousands of years. Imperial Metals Mount Polley tailings dam failure unleashed billions of gallons of toxic mine tailings and slurry into pristine water ways and salmon spawning grounds. The government of bc has issued a “restart permit” without the consent of the Indigenous Peoples and no sufficient clean up. Secwepemc join with others worldwide to resist and fight back against mining and the re-opening of this illegal and destructive mine, that is backed by government.

The footage taken was from several site visits to Ground Zero of the Mount Polley Disaster.
