Hands Across the Sand: Beach Protests Against Offshore Oil Drilling June 26

On June 26 at noon, people will take to beaches in coastal states around the nation and stand in the surf, hands linked, in a silent protest against the demonstrably unsafe practice of offshore oil drilling. It’s called Hands Across the Sand; click here to see if there’s a protest at a beach near you.

  • Tom

    Are these people going to stand there for a year, a month, a week, a day, a few hours? Wouldn’t it be advantageous for them to congregate where the oil is washing up NOW and help clean that area (as a protest, of course)?

  • One problem with that, Tom, is they’d have to travel a long way to get there, and to burn a lot of oil to do so.
