For the 1,300 state legislators and corporate lobbyists gathered inside, the perceived security threat turned out to be from those who stand the most to lose from ALEC attacks on workplace rights, minimum wage laws and state health and environmental standards — California workers.

An estimated 2,500 protestors, carrying placards declaring California to be an “ALEC-Free Zone,” gathered around 1 p.m. in Embarcadero Marina Park to hear a series of speakers lambasting the secretive, rightwing meeting happening inside the Hyatt. The demonstrators, who represented roughly 40 California labor unions and San Diego-based allied organizations, then marched on the Hyatt for a rally at Kettner Boulevard and West Harbor Drive.

It was all over by 5 p.m., but not before rumors reached hotel management that San Diego Occupy might attempt to storm the hotel in a civil disobedience action. The first indications for hotel guests that something might be amiss came when the already heavy presence of blazer-wearing Hyatt security was reinforced by lobby patrols of uniformed private cops in flack jackets and riot gear. Admittance to the hotel was restricted to registered guests or credentialed ALEC attendees.
