Big Dams, Salmon and Indigenous Rights: “Solving the Klamath Crisis” Film at La Peña

Date:
Wednesday, March 14, 2007
Time:
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Event Type:
Screening
Organizer/Author:
Elizabeth Brink
Location Details:
La Peña 3105 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley

Four hydroelectric dams built eighty years ago have degraded the health of the Klamath River, decimated local salmon populations, and imperiled three Native American tribes. But now, those dams may be torn down thanks to a budding coalition of Native Americans, farmers, environmentalists, fishing people and a feisty federal judge who forced the U.S. Interior department to protect California and Oregon’s endangered salmon—a key to the rights, and livelihoods of the three tribes that depend on the river.

Come see the story behind the headlines about the world's biggest proposed dam-removal, and how these previously adversarial groups have become a viable coalition. On March 14 International Rivers Network and the Karuk Tribe of California will screen “Solving the Klamath Crisis: Keeping Farms and Fish Alive” at Berkeley’s La Peña Cultural Center at 7pm, in celebration of the 10th annual International Day of Action for Rivers.
