    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     annsnell estimated that 75-90 people joined hands on the shore in New London, Connecticut. Everyone observed 15 minutes of silence. 'It felt empowering,' she said. 'It felt like we were doing something.'
    - katie, CNN iReport producer

    Many joined hands on Saturday the 26th of June at Ocean Beach, New London, CT.

    The event took place at around 900 locations around the world.

    It was a peacful protest of off shore drilling and oil dependency.

    We were so happy to be a part of this ever growing movement and to have an opportunity to lend our support to our brothers, sisters, sealife and wildlife in and near the Gulf of Mexico.
