By BBN Staff: People across the country will gather to join hands on beaches, across bridges, along sea walls and in other public areas to stand in solidarity against offshore oil development in Belize, and to embrace a clean energy future on Saturday, May 20 at noon.
This is one of hundreds of synchronized events globally to raise awareness about the dangers of dirty fuels and the need to speed the transition to available, affordable clean energy solutions.
The event is particularly salient this year with Belize having just recently been confronted with seismic air gun blasting in our waters late October 2016.
Hands across the Sand/Land will take place at the following locations:
Orange Walk – Independence Plaza
Dangriga – Y Not Island
Belize City – Lighthouse
Placencia – Between Cozy Corner and Tipsy Tuna
Corozal – Miami Beach
Cayo – Wooden Bridge
Hopkins – Beach side (Catholic Church)
Sarteneja – Parque del Almandre
Punta Gorda – Front Street
Caye Caulker – Beach near San Pedro Belize Express
