Help­ing hands on beach

Stirling Times - - News -

A GROUP of Scar­bor­ough res­i­dents joined hands to pro­mote a clean en­ergy fu­ture.

They met on Scar­bor­ough Beach last month for one of 117 Hands Across the Sand events world­wide.

The group joined hands to draw a metaphor­i­cal and lit­eral line in the sand against the use of fos­sil fu­els and raise aware­ness of po­ten­tial risks of oil and gas drilling.

Or­gan­iser Claire McKin­non said it was a way of unit­ing the com­mu­nity in the pro­tec­tion of the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment.

“There is broad com­mu­nity con­cern across WA of the threats to our wa­ter, land and com­mu­nity health from un­con­ven­tional gas min­ing and frack­ing. We joined hands on Scar­bor­ough Beach and with the global com­mu­nity to stand against such dangerous oil and gas ex­plo­ration,” she said.
