Hands Across the Sand

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.

Hands Across the Sand is now international . Any person in any country may plan events on this website. This is a peaceful gathering of the people of the world. Planning an event is as simple as this:

Go to your beach on June 26 at 11 AM.
Form lines in the sand and at 12:00, join hands.
The image is powerful, the message is simple. NO to Offshore Oil Drilling, YES to Clean Energy.

NO to Offshore Oil Drilling
YES to Clean Energy.
12 Noon, Saturday June 26th, at a beach near you.

In Victoria, Willows Beach is 800 metres long, so we need 600 people to cover the entire length of the beach. It will be a good low tide that morning. Please come and enjoy the fun, and help send the powerful message of NO OFFSHORE DRILLING FOR OIL in BC’s waters – CLEAN ENERGY NOW.
