Hands Across the Sand

Your instructions for this Saturday:

  1. Go to the beach at 11 AM in your time zone for one hour, rain or shine.
  2. Join hands for 15 minutes at 12:00 forming lines in the sand against oil drilling in our coastal waters.
  3. Leave only your footprints.

These are the steps to participate in the Hands Across the Sand event occurring across the globe, this Saturday, June 26, 2010. Sponsored by 350.org, Hands Across the Sand is “a movement made of people of all walks of life and crosses political affiliations. This movement is not about politics; it is about protection of our coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife, and fishing industry.  Let us share our knowledge, energies and passion for protecting all of the above from the devastating effects of oil drilling.”

The event will be powerful with a simple message: Say NO to offshore oil drilling, and YES to clean energy.

Middlebury’s own Race to Replace team will be participating in the Burlington event. Come out and join us for a day of sun, sand, surf, and clean energy!
