Press Release: Hands across the Sand at Albany Beach Tomorrow

From Stephanie Thomas
Thursday August 02, 2012 - 04:50:00 PM

On Aug 4, 2012, people from over 40 countries will join hands to champion clean energy. The event will begin in New Zealand, move across the world, and end in Hawaii. We are joining hands for clean energy, to keep near and offshore oil drilling out of our waters, and to end our dependence on the fuels that foul our air, water and food. 

Please join Transition Albany, Transition Berkeley, and local East Bay residents for a "Hands Across the Sand" gathering 

Where: At the beach, Albany Waterfront Park, on Buchanan Extension, West of the 580/80 freeway ramp, entrance just to the right of lower parking area of Golden Gate Fields 

When: Saturday, August 4th at 11:30-12:15, 

What: At noon, participants will join hands for 15 minutes to form a line along the beach/ shoreline, in solidarity with this worldwide action. Option to stay later for reflection and refreshments.
