Bohemian Grove is a 2000 acre ancient redwood grove in Monte Rio California owned by the San Francisco Bohemian Club. For over 130 years the power elite of the corporate, banking, military and political circles have gathered for two weeks in July to play in the woods and celebrate themselves by watching elaborate plays, drinking, feasting, story telling, and listening to "lakeside chats" from their peers.
Since 1980 a growing coalition of peace and social justice groups have worked to expose these powerful Bohemians and their global connections.
This year's protest sponsors include:
S.F. Bohemian Action Network,
Green Party of California,
International Indian Treaty Council,
Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County,
