We’ve created #SaveOurSand campaign stations and positioned them across the Monterey Bay in various stores and at events to protest the illegal CEMEX Lapis Lustre Sand Mining operation in Marina, CA.
Each station contains the necessary tools for the average person to make a difference. We’re asking people to scoop some Lapis Lustre Sand refined from the mine, sign a petition postcard and seal it in an envelope. Each #SaveOurSand postcard contains a “tongue-and-cheek” cartoon on the front and an official petition letter on back, detailing the mine’s violations and our position. When we’ve collected several thousand, we’re going to deliver them directly to the California Coastal Commission and State Lands Commission during public meetings and to their offices.
This is a very public statement. It’s time for a cease and desist. It’s time to #SaveOurSand.
For the next month, people can drop in at these stations to sign a #SaveOurSand petition against the sand mine.
