From the Sierra Club in the USA:

Stand in solidarity with Santa Barbara on May 31

We’re coming together on Sunday, May 31 to #StandInTheSand in solidarity with Santa Barbara and show our support for clean, renewable energy that never spills.

At 1 p.m. we will gather at the Santa Barbara City Hall for a community rally with our elected leaders, nonprofits on the front lines of oil spill response, members of the public and some surprise guests. After the rally at De la Guerra plaza, we will march down State Street (using the pedestrian sidewalks) towards the waterfront and West Beach. Upon arrival at West Beach, we will form a “human boom” at the water’s edge to symbolically stem the rising black tide of oil. Everyone is encouraged to wear yellow!

Here are the details. RSVP below to let us know you’ll be there!

WHAT: #StandInTheSand Rally and March to Support Santa Barbara and Clean Energy

WHEN: Sunday, May 31, at 1 p.m.

WHERE: Starting at De La Guerra Plaza in front of the Santa Barbara City Hall at noon, then we will march down State Street towards the waterfront and West Beach [Map]
