Thousands across the country, including more than a hundred from the East, joined hands today to take a stand against offshore drilling.
Organizers of the protest call it “Hands Across the Sand.”
In Carteret County, more than a hundred residents and visitors met at Atlantic Beach this morning to protest.
WITN talked with some of the protestors who say they oppose offshore drilling and they want our state’s ocean, marine life, and coastal economy protected.
They also said they were there to show support for those suffering in the Gulf Coast.
