KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - Young protesters attending the Next Generation Climate Justice Action Camp marched through downtown Klamath Falls to raise awareness about water quality in the Klamath River.

The Herald and News reports (https://is.gd/p1t1lZ ) more than 20 teens arrived from the Ashland-based camp. They marched in front of the Klamath County government building on Monday while shouting a call-and-response chant: “When the river is under attack, what do we do? Stand up and fight back!”

After marching, the teens staged a salmon die-in, a street performance showing how the fish are affected by poor water quality.

Camp representative Lacey Jackson says the group hoped to raise awareness about the Klamath Straits Drain, a Klamath Project water control device they believe is contributing to poor water quality.
