The image is powerful, the message is simple. NO to Offshore Oil Drilling, YES to Clean Energy.


Thousands around the world came together to hold hands at noon on the beach to stand up for the Earth's Oceans.

In Roberts Creek, British Columbia, Canada on the Sunshine Coast, over 50 people came together in celebration and to send a message that they do not want oil drilling or oil tankers on the west coast of North America, in British Columbia, Canada nor Alaska or Washington in the United States.

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, fishing industry and coastal military missions. Let us share our knowledge, energies and passion for protecting all of the above from the devastating effects of oil drilling.

To organize a national movement to oppose offshore oil drilling and champion clean energy and renewables. These gatherings will bring thousands of American citizens to our beaches and cities and will draw metaphorical and actual lines in the sand; human lines in the sand against the threat oil drilling poses to coastal economies and marine environment.

To convince our politicians to stop the expansion of offshore oil drilling and to adopt policies encouraging clean and renewable energy sources. America needs legislation that creates tax incentives and subsidies to encourage the growth of clean energy and renewable industries for the future.
