Protestors targeted a training facility for Blackwater USA, the military security contractor that has come under fire for its activities in Iraq.
Organizers say about 300 people gathered Sunday at the 824-acre site in Potrero in southern San Diego County.
Protest organizers say they will organize a December recall vote against the members of the Potrero Planning Group who voted to approve the facility.
The Iraqi government claims Blackwater security personnel guarding a diplomatic convoy murdered 17 civilians and wounded 27 others in Baghdad last month.
