circling in the Greek media have suggested that the location
of this year's secretive Bilderberg meeting will be Athens,
Reporter, a Greek based website that gathers information
from different print and electronic media in Greece, reports
that the Elefterios
Tipos newspaper recently announced the location
and date of the meeting as Athens between 14th and 16th of May.
A second report in another Greek newspaper, Tovima,
has also suggested that the confab will be held in Athens in
the same area that hosted the 1993
According to the reports, invited guests include
the Queen of Netherlands Beatrix, the Spanish Queen Sophia,
Lawrence Summers, head of the National Economic Council and
James Jones, head of the US National Security Council.
Meanwhile, researchers have also picked up on
an article by Andrew Rettman in the EU
Observer alleging that the meeting would take place
in Europe sometime in June. Rettman has not responded to emails
requesting additional information.
If the meeting does take place in Athens, it is likely that
the group will use the Nafsika
Astir Palace (pictured), the resort that was previously
used by the heads of global business, banking and politics.
Situated in Vouliagmeni, a few miles south of Athens, the hotel
is built along a cliff side and features a private beach at
sea level, with a business center and a large conference room.
It must be stressed however, that such reports
may be mere conjecture, or even a disinformation campaign by
Bilderberg itself, in an attempt to throw researchers and journalists
off their scent.
Bilderberg usually convene at the end of May into
early June. The 2005 meeting in Germany was in early May but
every other meeting over the last decade has been later in the
month of May or in early June.
Similar reports were circulated prior to last
year's conference, also pinpointing the location as Athens.
However, the actual location turned out to be the Marriott
Hotel in Chantilly, Virginia, a few miles from
Obama and Hillary Clinton were thought to have
attended the meeting, which took place at the height of the
run in to the national party nominations and the Presidential
The hectic scenes outside last year's Bilderberg
conference were documented in filmmaker Alex Jones' newly released

In 2006 Alex Jones traveled to Ottawa, Canada
after gaining intelligence that the Bilderberg meeting would
take place there. Jones and his team were detained
by Canadian immigration on orders of the Bilderberg
Group for a 15 hour nightmare of interrogation, accusations
and threats of arrests in anticipation of the conference.
However, Jones made it to the Brookestreet Hotel
in Ottawa, met up with veteran Bilderberg investigator Jim Tucker
and Daniel Estulin, author of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group,
to capture footage that would later appear in his seminal film
It was mainly due to the efforts of the three
activists combined that elements of the Canadian media produced
a rash of reports about the Ottawa meeting.
Media moguls who attend Bilderberg, such as Washington
Post CEO and Chairman Donald E. Graham, swear an oath of secrecy
and fulfil a promise each year to omit any coverage of Bilderberg
from their news outlets.
At the time Estulin stated that inside sources
had informed him that the elite group was seeking to artificially
inflate the subprime housing sector over a course of 18 months,
in order to lure investors back into the market, before bottoming
it out and consolidating the gains (see the video below). Now
this has happened exactly as predicted.
Insiders at Istanbul revealed that the Bilderberg
agenda for 2007/2008 included a hiking of oil
prices towards the $200 mark, something that seemed
unbelievable at the time but again consequently happened exactly
