Short Description of Activity
5 Broads attended the Salmon/Orca Rally in Olympia to protest the Task Farce by Gov. Inslee and the lack of action. We brought our signs and urged breaching of the dams on the Lower Snake River. Several speakers and musicians also presented. Jim Waddle, Orca Scientist on San Juan Island, also spoke. We met gals from Polly Dyer as well as the Seattle Broads and had a lot to talk about!
Two Broads opted to leave their protest signs outside on the wall of the Capital building and security personnel promptly stole them. I had mentioned to them that they needed to hide the signs in a safe spot in case of this happening, but they left them there, anyway. Consequently, they were stolen, but we still have 5 more. Perhaps I need to be a bit more assertive about this issue, as the same thing happened in Salem several years ago. The goal of the activity was to elicit public outcry for the plight of the salmon and orca.
