Monte Rio, California was the site this weekend for the rich and powerful to discuss, well — who knows? Bohemian Grove is an annual event, but only those allowed inside know the group’s true agenda.
Alongside between beautiful redwood trees and picturesque coastlines, the Bohemian Grove site serves as the perfect getaway for the world’s rich and powerful. Every year, CEOs, media moguls and high-level politicians flock here to embrace each other during a secluded camp-out that has made the event one of the most well known of the world’s secret societies.
This year, as in the past, protesters gathered outside the property to demonstrate against what they argue is the erosion of a democratic society.
“Less than a mile from us there are millionaires, billionaires, people who control the world, control the central banks, build nuclear weapons. This is their summer playground,” says Dr. Peter Phillips of Project Censored.
Dr. Phillips once spent three days on the inside of the Grove, but now on the outside he argues that the public has a right to know what is happening on the other side of the fence. He participated in this weekend’s Occupy Bohemian Grove.
