Kate Walsh Protests Against Offshore Drilling

'Private Practice' star Kate Walsh joined protesters in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday to rally against offshore oil drilling.

Kate Walsh teamed up with activists from conservation organisation Oceana to take a stand against deep-water drilling on the one-year anniversary of the BP oil spill, which lasted for over 100 days last year as gallons of oil leaked into the sea.

Kate Walsh took a moment to remember those who were killed in the accident, and stressed the importance of preventing similar disasters in the future.

She tells the Washington Examiner, "I was devastated, it was sort of like a sucker punch, and the frustration that I think everyone felt of not being able to stop it."

"It was insane to me that it went on as long as it did, but it's also humbling and informative in that, look, in this day in age, when we can send somebody to the moon, and we can talk on a phone that we take everywhere and watch TV on our watches, that nature is still there and we can't go and drill without accidents happening - it's just dangerous and it's dirty."
