Members of the community gathered at Sixth Street Beach for
hands Across the Sand Saturday.
Greenport community members and their North Fork neighbors drew a line in the sand at Sixth Street Beach Saturday.
The beach was one of thousands of locations worldwide used Saturday for Hands Across the Sand — a movement for the protection of coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife, and the fishing industry.
Greenport was one of 11 Long Island locations to host a Hands Across the Sand event. The movement was born in Florida.
People gathered at the beach to form a line at 11 a.m. At noon they joined hands.
The movement is about “saying no to off-shore drilling, and saying yes to clean energy,” the event website says.
