Hear from coast protectors Frank and Kathy Brown, of the Heiltsuk Nation in the Great Bear Rainforest, who experienced a devastating oil spill in their territory when an articulated tanker barge (ATB) sank. These 'ghost tankers' pose a huge threat to the Salish Sea and the entire Cascadian Coast. Hear from Fred Felleman, Friends of the Earth and RAVEN Trust about action you can take to strengthen coast protections and keep dirty oil off the coast, and support the Heitsuk who are going to court to fight for stronger protections for our oceans and our communities. A fundraising for RAVEN (raventrust.com/heiltsuk): donations are tax deductible.

“Where this incident occurred, our people still harvest dozens of marine and intertidal species for sustenance and ceremony and trade. Our people have lived there and relied on the bounty of that place since time immemorial. It is no small thing to violently disrupt tens of thousands of years of Heiltsuk history and identity.” Kelly Brown, Director of the Heiltsuk Integrated Resource Management Department
