Protests erupted at the California PUC meeting on November 29, 2018 which was held after the massive fires in the state that have killed dozens of people. The PG&E and other utilities are supposed to be regulated by the Public Utilities Commission. It is run by an appointee of Governor Brown Picker who was charged at the meeting with being shill and pawn of the utility industry.

Many speakers demanding that the utility is allowed to go bankrupt and take it over as a publicly run utility. Police took down banners and one participant was physically pushed by a staff member of the PUC according to a participant.
