The most dangerous modern enemies to the powers that be are truth, transparency and courage.
This video begins with a policeman just outside of the secure area around the Taschenberger Palais in Dresden, Germany, meeting place for the 2016 Bilderberger conference, explaining to the discontented small crowd of activists that a group is not allowed to assemble in this area. A group was defined as two or more persons assembled to advance a political message using a written protest sign or banner that could be viewed by others. The crowd was told that the signs were not allowed to be displayed on the side of the street where the conference was being held. The orders received from above were clear - No written protest allowed within sight of the hotel was to be tolerated.
A young man named Alan Buttle and his companion Maria Hunter who had displayed cardboard signs at the fence on the day prior were detained and he was held for interrogation, ostensibly because the three-pound loaf of bread he had in his pack presented an inherent danger to the Bilderbergs, before being released with a restriction on being within 500 meters of the area for the remainder of the conference. Her sign, bearing the words, "This sign will be confiscated!?", proved to be prophetic. He was a well-spoken man who very patiently and politely discussed the reasoning behind the police's action preventing his right to express his opinion using the cardboard sign proclaiming "If you have nothing to hide, why all the secrecy?". Reminiscent of the argument posed by security organs daily in bids to coerce cooperation among members of the public, this message was apparently too dangerous to be left in sight of passers-by, and a group of about 16 police quickly gathered around the two as several reporters had closed in to capture the scene, intentionally displacing the reporters and especially to prevent them from recording audio of the discourse.
In a humiliating move to document the "perpetrators", Maria was pinned to the ground by a policeman stepping on her leg while another held her face to be photographed in a nearby park. There were several reporters present that had photographed both of them and several police cameras were being used during the event, so one has to wonder why this type of treatment was deemed necessary by the authorities. Was it really a last resort to follow protocoll?...or an intimidation tactic to suppress dissent? The author of the story linked to above inquired as to the whereabouts of the two the next day in order to write the story. She was sent photos of the two as they were holding their signs but these photos were of course not used for the story printed in the local BILD newspaper, for their messages would have then been inadvertently presented to an even larger audience. This perhaps had something to do with the fact that Mathias Döpfner, head of the media empire Axel-Springer Verlag, which the BILD newspaper belongs to, was on the guest list and had been observed entering the Taschenberger Palais.
In the second part of the video we see Reporter Josh Owens from Infowars being subjected to a 'random' search in what the police called a 'controlled area' which was outside the fenced-in secured area around the hotel. Josh had been visible in that area often in the three days prior to this clip, his camera equipment made his presence as a reporter obvious and that he was hoping for a video interview of General Petraeus was evident to the officers at the time they stopped him for the search.
The evening before, a large group of alternative media reporters was gathered in an area some 500 yards from the secured area when they were surrounded by police, their identification documented and their personal belongings searched.
These people that go places and investigate things the corporate media allows to fall through the cracks deserve the utmost repect and much more attention than most people are willing to give them. They are dedicated to getting to the truth of the matter and informing the public, unlike the so-called mainstream media that acts as a PR company for government and corporate interests instead of performing the watchdog functions expected of them. The tag, conspiracy theorist is a weaponized term, originally devised to deflect attention from any cognitive arguments calling the official narrative portrayed by the Warren Comission into question hasn't lost it's effectiveness, some 50 years down the road. Some 150 of the best-connected, most powerful functionaries of politics, finance, technology and commodities meeting in secret a few days, offering no comments to the media about which path has been decided regarding the agenda published on the Bilderberg website is by any metric, a substrate for conspiracy.
The next time someone calls an argument into question because it was not backed up by an "accepted" network, remember that the alternative reporters are often crowd-funded and not corporate funded. These people are persistent and willing to go against the grain, accepting all of the troubles that come with the territory, for their principles.
To borrow a quote i once heard, the opposite of courage is not cowardice in this day and age, it is conformity.
