Offshore oil drilling protest in Pacific Beach

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Dozens of people lined up along pacific beach Saturday to protest new offshore oil drilling in the United States.

Protestors chanted: "What do we want? Clean energy. When do we want it? Now!!!"

Protestors say Saturday's "Hands Across the Sand" event was designed to raise awareness about the dangers of offshore oil drilling-- and end our country's dependence on oil.

"We support green energy. We don't want to see off-shore drilling continue. We don't want to see spills like what we saw in the gulf. We want to see our leaders investing in newer sustainable energy," said Haley Haggerstone of the Surfrider Foundation San Diego.

Several "Hands Across the Sand" events were held across the U.S. Saturday.
