AK2UK_ Anti-Pebble Mine

Quote from bigpull
It’s alternately inspirational, touching and heartbreaking to see the AK2UK crew fighting with everything they’ve got to defend the fish on which their lives depend, and to speak sense to the dark cloud on the horizon that is the Pebble Project. Everett Thompson, for instance, in a London Times op-ed piece, tugs on the heartstrings of Britons by comparing Bristol Bay today to the River Thames centuries ago. The Thames, which flows through London, was once one of the great Atlantic salmon rivers of the world until London became an epicenter of the industrial revolution. The last salmon in the Thames is believed to have been caught in 1833.
