Protestors will be surrounded by 2 fences

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

From the Rocky Mountain News...

The designated protest zone at the Democratic National Convention will be surrounded by two fences, placed eight feet apart, that will create a buffer between protesters inside the first fence and people outside, such as delegates.

In documents filed in federal court, the Secret Service said that if delegates walk directly from the security checkpoint to the Pepsi Center, they will pass "within 200 to 400 feet" of the protest zone, which will take up about 50,000 square feet in parking Lot A.

The view will be unobstructed and will be lit at night, the documents state.

No word yet on the protest zone at Invesco (or any other info about Invesco for that matter)
What I want to know is where do you go to get credentials to stand in the 8 foot buffer zone?
