It was reported
in April that this year's Bilderberg meeting will be held near Watford in the United Kingdom from June 6-9; and despite the recent death
of longtime Bilderberg reporter Jim Tucker, opponents of the group still have plans to protest this year's event. Luke Rudkowski, the founder of We Are Change, is raising money
to be able to go to this year's event and report on the protest. Radio host, filmmaker, and Infowars and Prison Planet director Alex Jones recently announced
that he, too, has plans to protest and cover the event.
UK officials are fully aware, however, of both the event and the plans to protest it. The Watford Observer
, a weekly UK newspaper published by Newsquest
, recently reported
that Watford's elected mayor, Dorothy Thornhill, had spoken out about the meeting. Here is what she had to say:
I have my concerns about it because it does attract people who can and do cause violence and disturbance. But I am confident the police will be able to minimize that and give them their right to protest. I am ambivalent about whether this is a good thing. It’s potentially a positive thing as long as things don’t kick off. I am concerned about the use of police resource but it is very good The Grove has been deemed a prestigious enough venue.
Last year's Bilderberg meeting
sparked a massive, non-violent protest and was covered by Russia Today, Infowars, Adam Kokesh, Mark Dice, We Are Change, and others.
