On Saturday, February 13th the Citizens of Florida will have an opportunity to show their opposition to oil drilling as close as 3 to 10 miles off our coast. This movement will be made of people of all walks of life and will cross political affiliations. This movement is not about politics; it is about protection of our shoreline, our tourism, our valuable properties and our way of life. Let us share our knowledge, energies and passion for protecting our waterways and beaches from the devastating effects of oil drilling.
“Hands Across The Sand” is devoted to protecting our coastline and waterways from the devastating environmental effects of oil exploration and support industries. Its mission is to raise awareness about pending Florida legislation to drill for oil in our coastal waters, and to organize a statewide coastal movement to protest this legislation. This protest will bring thousands of Florida’s citizens to our beaches and will draw metaphorical and actual lines in the sand; human lines in the sand against near shore oil drilling in our waters.
It’s easy, simply…
STEP 1 On Saturday, February 13th go to the beach at 12:00 noon for one hour, rain or shine.
STEP 2 At 12:30 PM hold hands forming lines in the sand against oil drilling in our coastal waters.
STEP 3 Leave only your footprints.
PARKING: There are two Prime Locations for parking in Panama City Beach: Spinnaker and Pier Park.
