FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. - Saturday, people all around the world lined the beaches for the annual "Hands Across the Sand" movement. These pictures were taken at Fort Myers Beach.    

At noon, participants joined hands for 15 minutes to show their opposition to oil drilling in coastal waters, and support of clean energy. The movement actually started in Florida in 2010 and has since spread to shorelines around the world.
Saturday's event began in New Zealand, and moved across the world, ending in Hawaii.
