Let’s Stand with the Wet’suwet’en for the Salish Sea

On March 15 from 12-2 there will be a rally in Port Angeles at the Coho ferry terminal in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en fight. The rally is an opportunity for indigenous and non-indigenous folks on the Peninsula to share songs, prayer, and drumming and show the Wet’suwet’en that we stand with them. We will also have fliers to give ferry riders so they know why we are there. 
The contact for this action is Tyler Munk. (360)780-0573. Call or text, or email at starfish30@protonmail.com.
