Video: Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw board fish farm as part of eviction process

fish farm visit

Boats from several Kwakwaka’wakw communities approach Cermaq fish farm in the territory of the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw territory near Kingcome Inlet.

“Are we prepared to die for this. I think we are now. The fight is on!”

The Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw boarded a salmon farm in their territory for the second time in three days to begin the process of cleansing their waters of the fish farm industry. This is done in the name of our children, future generations and in memory of our ancestors.

Today, boats from the communities of Gwayasdums (Gilford Village), U’kwa’nalis (Kingcome Village) and Alert Bay converged on Cermaq’s Sir Edmond farm in the unceded territories of the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw.

We, the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw view the destruction of wild fish by the fish farming industry as part of the long history of genocide forced on our people by the governments of Canada. Salmon are essential to our well-being and the well-being of our world.

  1. Really, I thoughts the courts were where we fought the battles.

  2. Not when you can’t count on the courts for justice. Time’s up.

  3. Not when the courts deny justice and put profit before a healthy environment. Time’s up.

  4. Not ceded territory they have no right to farm fish there.
