Hands Across the Sand at Richmond Beach

Monday, June 28, 2010


In response to the continuing disaster in the Gulf, people gathered on coastlines around America as a visible response to offshore oil drilling and its consequences. 

In Shoreline, about 30 people gathered at the Richmond Beach Saltwater Park on Saturday, June 26.

The founder of the beach event, Florida surfer Dave Rauschkolb, said

"This isn't about politics, it's about protecting all we hold so dear. It does not matter whether you are a liberal or conservative, businessperson or environmentalist, grandfather or teenager. We are all Americans and world citizens who value our coastal heritage. We are joining hands to say NO to offshore oil drilling and Yes to Clean Energy."

Wish I could have made it. Thank you to all who gathered at our gem of a beach. Let's all do our best not to buy lawn chemicals that end up polluting our sound.

And did anyone drive down to the beach in order to make their statement?
