I think it's called Switzerland, not Swiss.

Why not? Don't you ever attend parties which are "by invitation only"?

Well, I don't have any official power.

Politicians from the whole world meeting with corporate chiefs on "unofficial" meeting doesn't seems correct.

There are some protests from Switzerland politicians too, I've heard.

Seems fine to me. They're people just like we are. Nice to see them enjoying each others' company.

It's something about transparent behavior. At least in case of politicians. I don't care about corporate chiefs much. They're not my representatives.

Protest BILDERBERG NOW!! THIS WEEKEND in St. Moritz!!

This is the group that creates banks like the IMF and World Bank that create money out of nothing, loan it out, and then cause booms and busts, while taking away the freedom and sovereignty of nations during the busts. They created the EU which is run by UNELECTED bureaucrats, who are controlled by THIS GROUP. Their goal is total control of the world via a police state.

PROTEST THIS WEEKEND IN ST MORITZ!

If you don't know what Bilderberg is, here is what Alex Jones is saying, as well as a documentary here:

Re: Protest BILDERBERG NOW!! THIS WEEKEND in St. Moritz!!

Someone has to be in charge, so why not our elected people taking advice from a group of unelected experts?

If you are British, do you remember Prime Minister Edward Heath twisting the Queen's arm and making her sign up for the EU? She wasn't elected either. Did you protest at that? No.

Haven't the IMF and World Bank been "lending" money to the elected governments of Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland ? Did you protest at that? No.

Has the world changed since President W. Bush went to Evian? A friend of mine is a Swiss union leader, her son is an anarchist. They both went to Geneva to protest, and were both beaten up by the Geneva police, both requiring hospital treatment. Did that change anything? No.

Sorry I won't be going. Save yourself the train fares and watch it on TV.

I don't know who Alex Jones is, but he asks me to protest against a group that came up with the ideas for the EU and the carbon tax. I like the EU and the carbon tax ideas... but I like his line "in the remote village of St. Moritz".
