Joinhands 155 Hands Across the Sand Morro Bay, CA 26 June 2010. Scenes from June 26, 2010 when people from across the world in over 700 locations joined hands to say no to offshore oil drilling and yes to clean energy and renewables. Approximately 155 people held hands in this event.

www.handsacrossthesand.com/ says Thank you, America and the world, for joining hands on June 26. Together we will draw a line in the sand and embrace a clean energy future.

Added these photos to the Flickr Group at www.flickr.com/groups/joinhands which says Hands Across the Sand is a worldwide 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.
