Statement of Purpose

The Salish Sea Protectors' Fund ( SSPF ) is a legal defense fund established in the summer of 2018 by the Victoria-based Rise and Resist and Social Environmental Alliance ( SEA ) in response to the rolling mass arrests against the TransMountain tar sands pipeline/tanker expansion. 

The purpose of the fund is to provide financial assistance to local frontline activists who have been arrested in peaceful civil disobedience and direct action either directly asserting or upholding Indigenous Title and rights in defending a liveable climate,  clean water, wild salmon and the endangered southern resident Killer whales from the risks of tar sands and fossil fuel expansion, industrial open-net fish farms and other industrial threats to the cultures, communities and biodiversity of the Salish Sea.

As resources are available, the fund will help cover personal costs associated with being arrested such as paying fines, lost income, legal fees, child care and travel costs etc.
