What: Green Convergence at Bohemia for Peace and Justice
When: Friday, July 15th- Sunday, July 17th Where: Bohemian Grove is located in the Sonoma County Russian River community of Monte Rio, near the intersection of Hwy. 116 and Bohemian Highway. It is accessible on the Sonoma Transit bus #20 from Santa Rosa Transit Mall.
Mark Your Calendar. Plan your mid-summer excursion to protest the war profiteers as they come to Bohemian Grove, yet again, to cremate their "Cares of the Marketplace". Join local Greens, veterans' groups, corporate responsibility organizations, faith groups, students, people who have never protested before, and the Green Party of California as they converge at Bohemian Grove and call for an end to the Carelessness of their leaders.
Why: Each year, in mid-summer, the elite members of the Bohemian Club in San Francisco gather for two weeks of revelry and "throwing off the cares of the marketplace" among the redwood groves along Sonoma County's Russian River. The club's members include many Presidents, past and present. George H.W. Bush are members, as well as the late Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, and every Republican President since Herbert Hoover.
But the root of the Grove's power is the men who support the efforts of "their' presidents, like they have with the current war in the Middle East. Critics call these gatherings anything but the innocent camaraderie among a group of men who happen to carry the cares of the world on their shoulders all year and just want to party for a couple of weeks.
Corporation executives and owners at the highest levels have gathered with prominent men in politics at Bohemian Grove and built networks that critics say sustains their acquisition of power and wealth throughout the year.
Who: Groups and individuals so far endorsing the Convergence Include Green Party of California, Green Party of Sonoma County, Green Party of Humboldt Co., Green Party of Mendocino County, Emerald Greens, Bohemian Grove Action Network, Veterans for Peace, Mendocino, Veterans for Peace, Garberville, Bill Meyers, Democracy Unlimited*, Dave Cobb, Green Presidential candidate, Ralph Nader, green Presidential candidate. Peter Camejo, Green Vice-Presidential candidate, Peter Phillips, Sonoma State University faculty, expert on Bohemian Grove, International Indian Treaty Council, and a growing list
