Photographer's Note

During the Earth Day 2006, in Balboa Park, San Diego, California, the organization allowed for several kinds of protesters in the Earth Fair.
This girl was taking care of a quite popular action (see workshop): Sign the petition to lower gas prices! I guess this petition got much more signatures than that for Moratorium on Capital Punishment. But I don't believe it was successful either.
In Portugal a petition to lower gas prices would not get many signatures, because Portuguese drivers would regard it as a waste of time, since they don't believe in Santa Claus and dont have good sense of humor.
Most of the price the Portuguese pay for fuel goes to the state as taxes (60% petrol tax, plus 21% VAT or sales tax).
