The group Hands Across The Sand will be holding rallies at 18 New Jersey beaches to protest offshore oil drilling. The beaches affected included Asbury Park, Seaside Heights, Sandy Hook, Atlantic Highlands, Long Branch, Jersey City’s Liberty State Park, Island Beach State Park, Barnegat Light, and Wildwood, among others. At the event, which will begin around 11 a.m., participants will join hands at noon for 15 minutes to protest oil drilling in coastal waters and then walk away leaving their footprints in the sand. Organizers expect the event, which is backed by a wide range of environmental groups, to draw thousands of people to the Jersey Shore.
