Salmon campaign group plans week of protests Published:  29 October, 2007

THE Pure Salmon Campaign has announced plans for a week of protest activity in countries including Scotland and Norway.

The organisation says that its second annual Global Week of Action, scheduled to take place this week, will focus attention on “how current aquaculture practices continue to damage the marine environment and pose other dangers to human health and workers’ safety”.

It says that campaign partner groups and allies in Australia, Canada, Chile, Ireland, Norway, Russia, Scotland, and the United States will be raising public awareness and holding events throughout the week.

Events scheduled include a gathering today outside a McDonald’s branch in Oslo city centre and a ‘Trick or Treat’ event in various locations in Edinburgh on Wednesday.

The Pure Salmon Campaign is a global project of the National Environmental Trust. It has partners in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and Chile which it says are all working to improve the way salmon is produced.
