Hands Across The Sand

Calling All Earth Angels! PLEASE come to this event and bring as many others as you can THIS SATURDAY, Feb. 3rdWe need a big crowd to show Washington and the media that we will NOT allow oil rigs off the coast of San Diego!!!

Say NO to drilling off our coastlines. Come join us for “HANDS ACROSS THE SAND”. We are gathering at Belmont Park in San Diego’s Mission Beach on Saturday, February 3rd, 11am-1pm, to amplify our voices. Why?…

Because the Trump Administration’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has proposed drilling off nearly all U.S. coastlines, including San Diego’sand has scheduled only one public hearing (far away from CA coastlines) in Sacramento. They are not hearing the voices of San Diegans and we need to change that.

We will rally together with our local leaders in a bipartisan effort, to require a fair hearing process from BOEM. Then we will join hands up and down the beach for a big photo op as we humans spell out “NO OIL” on the sand.

This is your chance to have your voice heard, on a national level, that we will not welcome off-shore drilling on our coast!! The extraction and burning of fossil fuels increases carbon emissions, acidifies our oceans, leads to extreme weather, and jeopardizes both California’s clean energy goals, and the mandated enforceable Climate Action Plans of many jurisdictions.  We are dedicated to converting to clean energy and protecting the ocean that provides much of our air supply, our food, many jobs, income from tourism & recreation, and enhances our quality of life. This is a survival issue for each and ALL of us!

Speakers include:
• U.S. Representative Scott Peters (District 52)
• State Assembly Member Rocky Chavez (District 76)
• Councilmember Lorie Zapf (City of San Diego, District 2
• Chairwoman Kristin Gaspar (S.D.County Board of Supervisors)
• Councilmember Georgette Gomez (San Diego, District 9)
• Assembly Member Todd Gloria (District 78)

Moderated by Eve Simmons

This is a people-powered movement so please bring everyone you can to help us fight this dirty and dangerous drilling agenda.

Walk, bike, ride, or carpool, and park in one of 5 nearby lots and head to the beach near Cannonball Restaurant (3105 Ocean Walk, San Diego, CA  Bring a reusable water bottle:)

Thanks and See You There!

Eve
