"We are calling on Jerry Brown to increase the protections on oil and gas and specifically to create setbacks which are protection zones around oil and gas wells of 2,500 feet," said organizer Cesar Aguirre.

Jessica Montoya Trujillo of Santa Fe, New Mexico said "It's a horse and pony show, just a trade show to pull the curtain down on the truth and that's what we are here to do is speak truth."
The group was peaceful but did create some inconveniences. Traffic came to a halt around Moscone Center as protesters shut down Third Street between Mission and Folsom.
There were also a few arrests as protesters blocked doors to the Moscone. Delegates also couldn't enter at Third and Howard because of the large group.
