Saturday, July 14 - Rally at 2 pm
Monte Rio, CA
The corporate globalizers and their political henchMEN are coming
back to Sonoma County. And it will be just MEN, 2,500 men -- no
women allowed in this private club -- who will swarm together at
Bohemian Grove on Sat., July 14 for their annual rituals of the
rich. It's summer camp for the elite, but there's nothing harmless
about this gathering.
Bohemian Grove is a sinister convergence of many of the world's
most dangerous and destructive individuals, from Richard Cheney,
Donald Rumsfeld, and the Bechtels, to Henry Kissinger, Edwin Meese,
much of the Hoover Institute board, and the CEOs of such Fortune 500
giants as Dupont, Weyerhauser, PG&E, Bank of America, etc.,
etc., etc. Many top (male) figures in the Bush administration are
members of the club. The Bohemian Grove is a 2700-acre retreat in
west Sonoma County along the Russian River and is owned by the
Bohemian Club of San Francisco. For the past 122 years it has been
the site of a two-week summer gathering of highly placed corporate,
banking and political figures.
The "Lakeside Talks" at Bohemian Grove are conducted twice daily
during the two-week July retreat. Here's a selection from past

Who Else is Coming to Bohemian Grove?
