The Belize Coalition to Save Our Natural Heritage called on Belizeans who are against Offshore Drilling to actively show their opposition to this activity by joining hands across the sands on Saturday June 26, 2010. Despite the threat of the storm brewing a few miles away East of the Caye Caulker shore, representatives of the Coalition and residents of Caye Caulker turned up at 12noon to join the millions worldwide by linking hands.
While holding hands, a chat was held, "Ail ahn Waata Noh Mix". Hands were joined for fifteen minutes, and afterwards, only footprints remained.

Hands Across Sands will also be held in San Pedro, at a date and location to be announced.

this seems like "not in my back yard" to me.

I argue that unless you are living "off the grid" you are a hypocrite for involving yourself in such demonstrations.

Get rid of your motor boats, golf carts and put up solar panels and I'll start listening.

how do people get to AC and CC?, well most likely it is by Aircraft, that use jet fuel that I think at this point made mostly from oil.

is this not just like where to locate a nuclear power dump or landfill, I think we all agree it has to be somewhere, just not next to me.

Is offshore drilling safe when properly implemented? seems to be so, based on our past experience before Deep Horizon, obviously the profit motive will in many cases overcome the need to do things right which is where it comes to government to see to it things are done right where public safety is involved and the US government has shown itself to be totally inadequate in this regard. GOB would likely do worse. Is the answer no more drilling for oil anywhere?

or as I said above just not in my back yard?
