Award-winning author and anti-fish farm campaigner, Don Staniford is presenting a talk in Back, Isle of Lewis, on Tuesday 13th November, as part of his month-long tour of Scotland and Ireland.

In the talk – which will also be presented in Harris on Thursday November 15th – Don Staniford will set out disease and chemical data obtained via Freedom of Information legislation, and detail his campaign against fish farming in Scottish and Irish waters.

Don Staniford is the author of ‘Silent Spring of the Sea’  and works for the Global Alliance Against Industrial Aquaculture (GAAIA). His controversial ‘Salmon Farming Kills’ campaign sparked legal action in Canada and has attracted global media attention on the lethal impacts of salmon farming.

The talk in Back also sees the local launch of a new campaign aimed at supporting and coordinating local anti-fish farm campaigns in the Outer Hebrides.

All are welcome to attend, the meeting takes place at 7.45pm on Tuesday November 13th at ‘The Hut’ – Loch a’Tuath Community Hut, Back, Isle of Lewis.

The Hut is situated 100 yards beyond Gordon’s Shop on the main road through Back heading toward Tolsta.
