is my short report. I went to the venue since I live only about one hour
I witnessed the Bilderbergers arrive in dark Mercedes S500 limousines.
The cars for the Bilderbergers sport a "B" in the windshield so
they won't be bothered by another security check. Security was tight,
private security people that did not have a clue about what is going on
(or just acted that way). Lot's and lot's of police. CIA/U.S. Army
Special Forces guys were also present. Some people say that is
ridiculous, and "where are the sharpshooters". "Where is the equipment
of the Army guys"? DUH! You think they drive around Bavaria in
full combat gear or what?
Well, check out the guys with the military hairstyle. Daniel knows these
people for 13 years so I trust his judgment.
For the apparently "weak" security (white and red plastic ribbon) let me
tell you: I did not go beyond that point. I did not want to check how
"good" the security really was. And that would have only
compromised my ability to take photo and video. Since I was a good
citizen they had no way to force me away.
On the second day the police checked my ID card, it took a looong time,
they blamed bad reception (sure, all the checks in the databanks
take time!). They also checked my bag for bombs (I did not have any).
I'm not that interested in the security guys. Only one guy took a
picture of me, so I will feature him!
Since it was raining (cold and ugly) all the time some photos are of
real bad quality. I had to manage photo, video and an umbrella!
Why the "Copyright" notice? Well, there were people that expressed
interest in the pictures for print, so I hope you understand.
On Friday I missed the biggest fish! As I arrived Queen Beatrix also
did. My camera was not ready at that time - ARGH! But I can confirm she
was there, as always.
Now for the pictures. Please help me identify the people! Just send me
the info on what page the picture is and the filename. Right click on
the image and choose "View Image". It will tell you the filename.
Pages will be updated as I get the names! Updated 12.05.05
Thanks to the people that send me names.
Unfortunate news: Server will go down at the end of Mai. No, it's not
because of pressure from Bilderberg, but other events.
