Bilderberg 2016: US election and refugees top of agenda at secret invite-only conference

Water cannon and other tools of democratic suppression have been deployed by German police in preparation for “violent” protests outside this weekend’s Bilderberg 2016 conference.

The top-secret, four-day meeting launched on Thursday in the German city of Dresden, but only a handful of protesters have turned up to shout at the powerful politicians, corporate CEOs, and media insiders on the invite list.
