A large set of protesters took to the sand on Saturday at Laguna Beach.

Demonstrators linked hands to oppose a plan by the Trump administration to expand the California coast to offshore drilling.

Protestors took to the water too.

“Frankly I don't want any more pollution in the ocean, I boat there I fish there, it's for us to protect,” said one protestor.

The plan allows companies to lease 47 areas off America’s coastline for oil and gas exploration.

Two of them in Southern California.

This would be the first time in more than three decades that offshore drilling leases would be up for sale in California.
