Eyewitnesses say police let buses through, demonstration seemed “staged”

Charlie Skelton, the London Guardian reporter who has been detained and stalked by police officers on numerous occasions during his attempts to cover the 2009 Bilderberg meeting in Greece, states that a spontaneous protest broke out in the vicinity of Bilderberg’s hotel earlier today.
According to Skelton, while he was doing a radio interview with Alex Jones, several busloads of demonstrators pulled up outside the Astir Palace resort near Athens where Bilderberg are meeting and proceeded to engage in a spontaneous protest.
Skelton said that he didn’t personally witness the protest but a correspondent for the American Free Press informed him that the protesters bullhorned the hotel briefly before “melting away into the night.”
Even more interesting is the fact that when Skelton returned to the hotel he was told by eyewitnesses that the protest seemed “staged” because the buses were waived through by police. The demonstrators were described as “Communists shouting through loudspeakers”.
UPDATE: A translation of the article posted here states the following;
“300 members of the Greek Communist Party came with buses dodging the police barricades and staged a loud protest in front of the hotel where Bilderberg is meeting. Shouting slogans, holding up posters and transperancies they showed their discontent against globalisation, the EU and the NWO. About 50 police stood against them, although further troops are waiting in the background. Some pushing and shoving took place. The leaders of the demonstration said they don’t intend to enter the grounds.”
Was the protest staged so that the media could get footage of distasteful individuals “protesting” Bilderberg so Bilderberg could therefore attain some credibility?

In an altogether different scenario, Alex Jones bullhorned the elitist Bilderberg cabal during the 2006 and 2008 meetings in Ottawa Canada and Washington DC.
Greek authorities have vehemently cracked down on journalists merely attempting to photograph the hotel or even take pictures of the sea view opposite, so it would be interesting to learn how they dealt with the protesters.
Skelton told The Alex Jones Show today that he was still being constantly harassed and stalked by plain clothed police officers on motorcycles even when he is nowhere near the vicinity of the hotel.
The Bilderberg meeting will continue Saturday and attendees won’t begin leaving until Sunday afternoon.
No mainstream U.S. news outlet has yet reported on a secret gathering of around 150 of the world’s most influential powerbrokers in business, industry, government, academia and banking, proving once again Bilderberg’s almost watertight control over the gelded corporate press.
