[WORLD in PICTURES] Bilderberg 2012June 3, 2012 • By Cask J. Thomson
What is Bilderberg? What is the Bilderberg Protest, Occupy Bilderberg etc. etc. thing all about?
The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is a yearly, off-the-record, invitation-only conference of approximately 120 to 140 guests from North America and Western Europe. About one-third of its attendees are from allied governments with a further two-thirds from finance, industry, labor, education and communications. Meetings are locked to the public with details kept from the media. This obviously encourages many conspiracy theorists to condemn the meetings and the intensive need for secrecy that makes up the conference.
The conference runs from the 31st of May to the 3rd of June and, this year, held at Westfield’s Marriott hotel in Chantilly, Virginia, USA (Google Maps)
With many arrested primarily for taking photos of vehicles, the risk of protesting and the hotel’s security remains high. America’s well-known conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, was present at the protest and is visible in a few of the photographs.
