Hot Springs Residents Gather to Say NO to Offshore Drilling & YES to Clean Energy

On Saturday, June, 26, residents of Hot Springs joined the largest nationwide gathering against offshore drilling ever held.  Citizens met at Hot Springs Area Community Gardens and joined hands as part of a national Hands Across the Sand day of action.

Similar events took place from the Pacific to Atlantic Coast, showing thousands of Americans united against offshore drilling and in favor of clean energy in the wake of the BP disaster in the Gulf.

Hands Across the Sand was founded in October 2009 by Floridian Dave Rauschkolb. Since then, the movement has gone international.

In Hot Springs, about 25 residents gathered at Hot Springs Area Community Gardens to say NO to offshore drilling and YES to clean energy. They signed a petition urging President Obama to shift away from offshore drilling and toward clean American energy.

The event was hosted by Hot Springs Area Community Gardens and Audubon Arkansas.

GreenAR by the Day attended the event and took some photos. One of the participants even created a video after the event. Check them out!
