Say “Yes” to clean energy, “No” to offshore drilling by joining the Hands Across the Sand national day of action
A year after the country’s largest environmental disaster the regulatory landscape of oil and gas has still not changed. The BP Deepwater drilling disaster should be a wake-up call to get America beyond oil, and it’s up to us to make it happen.
On June 25 at 12:00, people of the world will have an opportunity to join hands and draw a line in the sand against expanding offshore oil drilling while championing clean energy. Join hands in Anchorage to end our dependence on oil and coal to embrace a clean energy future.

In response to high gas prices, some government leaders have aggressively been pushing new off shore oil and gas drilling, in the Gulf, Arctic, and everywhere else. Oil and Coal are the largest polluters threatening the quality of air we breathe, the water that we drink and the food we eat. We need to say no to offshore oil drilling and yes to clean energy to protect our futures.
This movement is about embracing energy sources that will sustain our planet. It’s about protecting our coastal economies, oceans, marine fisheries and wildlife, and cultures. Gather with fellow Alaskans for a clean energy future!
