Several hundred protesters filled streets near the Global Climate Action Summit, blocking entrances to the Moscone Center conference hall on September 13.

Two people were arrested. Demonstrators took over the street which substantially disrupted entrance into the GCAS venue.

The action was led by and in solidarity with indigenous and frontline communities protecting the earth. The Global Climate Action Summit, hosted by Governor Brown, was designed to celebrate climate achievements and encourage more action. However, because Governor Brown continues to protect billion-dollar dirty oil corporations that actively seek to undermine the necessary change, demonstrators brought their protest to the forefront of the event.
