Northwest Native Opposition to Genetically Engineered Fish

What are the risks from genetically engineered fish to the people and environments of the Pacific Northwest? New Canoe Media tackles this question head-on with their new short film Salmon People. This program documents an event organized by the Community Alliance for Global Justice and features the film and a panel of indigenous and advocacy activists working on Northwest Native food security and justice in the Pacific Northwest. Hear voices from across the Pacific Northwest who are speaking out about the risks of genetically engineered fish then give your Senators a call to support S.282 the Genetically Engineered Salmon Labeling Act.

Heather Day, moderator, Executive Director and co-founder of Community Alliance for Global Justice.
Valerie Segrest, Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty Project
Alan Stay, Office of the Tribal Attorney, Muckleshoot Indian Tribe
