Hands Across the Sand, June 26

Hands Across the Sand, an event/movement that began here in Florida, is gearing up for what may be the largest demonstration ever held against ocean oil drilling. The event—which has now gone global—will be held for 15 minutes beginning at noon local time, wherever you are, on Saturday, June 26.

I am planning to participate at a small beach on the Gulf Coast, and I imagine that folks who live inland can participate as well. If you don't find a site near you on this link, just pick a site, preferably near water, register it by emailing one of the folks listed here, and invite your friends. It might be good to alert your local media as well.

Never underestimate the power of a good picture and a cogent quote.

If not us, who? If not now, when?
