The rally was organized by the Klamath Justice Coalition, members of the Hoopa, Yurok and Karuk tribes, as well as environmental and fisheries organizations. Amber Shelton, a conservation advocate with the Environmental Protection INformation Center, was there and shared these following photos. The video was produced by the Seventh Generation Fund, an advocacy group dedicated to promoting and maintaining native people and their cultures.
More than 100 people gathered in front of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's Sacramento office Tuesday to demand that the bureau release additional water into the Trinity River, and by turn the Klamath, to prevent what they see as an imminent large-scale fish kill similar to that of 2002, when more than 50,000 salmon died of gill rot in the Klamath River.
