According to the info: "Members of local environmentalist groups will team up with Occupy Denver to rally and protest an upcoming "unconventional" oil and gas convention at the Colorado Convention Center, where former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum will be present as a speaker promoting the interests of the ideologically counter-progressive 1%.
The main theme was "Fracking" but attention also went to the oil spill by the Suncor refinery which continues to pollute the convergence of the Platte River and Sand Creek and threaten the local water supply.
It became quickly apparent there was another gathering at the Convention Center - this one of Alternative Energy & Environmentally friendly folk many of whom quickly identified themselves as being supportive of the demonstrators outside.
Though small - about 15-20 people - the demonstrators were lively and engaging.
Here is a flavor of the event over the lunch hour!
