Surfing Coalition Plans ‘Hands Across Lagoon’

The Surfers Coalition to Save Our Malibu Lagoon is sponsoring “Hands Across the Lagoon” on Saturday, April 7 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Malibu Lagoon State Park. The chain hand holding begins at 2 p.m.
“The purpose is to draw attention nationally and locally to the impending disaster and to persuade Governor Jerry Brown to put a stay on the 66 bulldozers scheduled to begin rolling June 1 (Malibu’s heaviest traffic time of the year!) and to implement an extremely less invasive and extremely less costly method of maintaining the lagoon such as oxygenation, which has already been investigated with good results,” a press release states.
Organizers are urging folks to bring a picnic lunch, signs, costumes and kids.
Activists who are scheduled to speak include Daryl Hannah; Pamela Anderson; Anthony Keidis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers; Robert Downey Jr.; Alan Sarlo; and more.
Attendees will make an effort to hold hands forming a human chain around the lagoon “to protect it and the thousands of wild birds and animals, who will have just given birth to their young (some of whom are on the protected and endangered species list), and will be killed if the bulldozers roll.
“To protect and preserve the beautiful sustainable, not overly developed way of life here in Malibu,” the press release states.
Organizers say the entire community is encouraged to attend. For more information contact 310-985-0068.
