Hands Across the Sand

Hands Across the Sand

If you oppose offshore drilling and want to hold hands with other like-minded people, then I have found the perfect event for you!  Hands Across the Sand is “a gathering of American citizens opposed to near- and off-shore oil drilling in our waters.” Sponsors of the event include The National Audubon Society, The Sierra Club, and Greenpeace. As of the writing of this post, the event will take place in thirty-nine States and five countries (USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, and Great Britain).

  • Date: Saturday, June 26, 2010
  • Time: 12:00 p.m.
  • Who: Anyone who wants to make a visual statement about near- and off-shore drilling and is willing to hold hands with a stranger.
  • Where: Across the United States and around the globe.  Check out the Hands Across the Sand map.

I confess that I am not usually big on sign-holding, voice-raising activism.  But – especially in the wake of the oil disaster in the Gulf – I am planning to join in on Hands Across the Sand.

  1. This sounds like a cool event. Hopefully participants are looking at the bigger picture and not all driving cars to the beaches. To combat oil drilling, consumers need to reduce their reliance on oil.

  2. I’m in the effected area and it’s just horrible and sad.
