Big oil protest sees not-so-big turnout in La Jolla


About 30 people lined up for the international Hands Across the Sand protest against offshore oil drilling and for clean energy, Saturday, Aug. 4 on La Jolla Shores Beach. A woman with a bullhorn tried to motivate beachgoers to join in and “stand up to big oil,” but there weren’t many takers. The event began in New Zealand, moved across the world, and ended in Hawaii. handsacrossthesand.com — Greg Wiest
