On Saturday 20th May thousands of people united on their local beaches to protest against sewage in our seas. The Surfers Against Sewage event brought people together to shout about keeping the water they loved spending time in clean.
Surfers Against Sewage is a marine conservation charity working with communities to protect oceans, waves, beaches and marine life. It was created in 1990 by a group of Cornish surfers from the villages of St Agnes and Porthtowan on the north coast of Cornwall.
The event created a stir nationally and invited anyone and everyone to be heard, to voice their concerns and worries about the condition of the water that they interact with and in. It allowed people to say that enough is enough.
Protesters took to the water around the country to demand change. The organised and peaceful demonstrations were led by surfers, paddle boards, divers, kayakers and swimmers. Everyone of them having the same goal, to just feel safer in the water.
Thankyou SAS for continuously fighting for all of us and for bringing us together.
