Hands Across the Sand: worldwide against oil drilling

This past weekend more than a hundred thousand people gathered in over 900 locations to join hands against offshore oil drilling.

There were events organized in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Originally intended as a local event, Hands Across the Sand went international with events held in: Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Belize, Canada, Costa Rica, Germany, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Greenland, Croatia, Ireland, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Lebanon, Mexico, Malaysia, Nicaragua, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Panama, Peru, Poland, Sweden, Tanzania, and South Africa.

Hands Across the Sand was a worldwide movement. From 12 p.m. to 12:15 p.m. in their local time zone people stood along beaches around the world holding hands to protest offshore drilling.

We would like to thank all who attended a local event, the organizations who partnered on this amazing effort and especially organizer Dave Rauschkolb, who created the original "seed" event earlier this year.

Bjorn Dunkerbeck and Philippe Bru have teamed up to open the Dunkerbeck Pro Center, in the Lac Bay Lagoon on the island of Bonaire, in the Dutch Caribbean.
