| AFP EDITOR, ACTIVISTS GIVE
'WARM WELCOME' TO BILDERBERG 2010
By Mark Anderson
Spain—Rolling out the
unwelcome mat to the mattoids at the infamous Bilderberg meetings takes
time, but by June 2, two days before the official start of the 2010
meeting, flyers and protests already were in an upswing in the pretty
seaside town of Sitges, near Barcelona.
By that day, sidewalk
messages had been
chalked. Flyers in Spanish started to circulate, warning of
Bilderberg’s ongoing attempt to control the futures and
fortunes of the world’s citizens, including the Spanish who,

the world, who are being financially and culturally squeezed out of
existence by Bilderberg-related policies, including broad planning

other crucial matters that should not be decided in secret (see the
video below for more on this).
police continue to guard those who the activists see as the real
lawbreakers. By noon June 2, area police had sealed off the one main
road to the Dolce Hotel, though the unusually large, two-mile
“forbidden zone” set up at last year’s
Bilderberg meeting in Greece had not been set up, as of the end of that
day. Nor were the notorious private security guards visible, at least
More than a
mile away from the hotel, on a wide, busy sidewalk near a string of
restaurants along the Mediterranean coast, a big chalk message warned
the locals, “The global elite is now in the Hotel Dolce in
Sitges, meeting in secret.” Some pedestrians looked. Some
“secret” is becoming less secret, especially
according to a local pub owner who, around 9:30 p.m., told AMERICAN FREE
PRESS that flyers (which,
unbeknownst to her, started circulating right by Hotel Dolce late on
the morning of June 2) had already made it to her business two to three
miles away. She also said some people in town had heard about the June

publicity, which included an all-day visit near the Dolce by
“LaSexta Noticias” on channel 6 news, is getting
brighter. The channel 6 TV reporter, accompanied by a camera operator,
told AFP she had just read about Bilderberg in El Periodico, an area
newspaper, in what she described as a rather lengthy article.

this reporter observed a light police presence, but the general public
could still enter the Hotel Dolce, where the U.S. attendees among the

making policy behind closed doors with foreign government officials.
The flyers point out this important fact.

As of June 2,
no identifiable Bilderberg attendees with household names had been
spotted entering the Dolce. The same goes for lesser-known attendees,
though a trusted source watched the Barcelona airport and said he saw
20 arrivals get into 10 limousines. They spoke English, Italian and
