For over 30 years, West County activist Mary Moore and the Bohemian Grove Action Network protested outside the Bohemian Grove as the elite of the world’s financial, government, corporate and military systems paraded in for “lakeside chats,” morning gin fizzes, drag performances, infamous “Cremation of Care” ceremonies and the chummy camaraderie of being comfortably in the 1 percent
But the actions lost numbers when Moore broadened her energies to other causes, such as Palestinian issues and police brutality. In 2010, Nor-Cal Truth activist Brian Romanoff took up the reins; oftentimes working alone, he handed out pamphlets on 9-11 to the passing elite. Last year’s encampment drew a group of new, anonymous protesters with flyers warning of satanic “bohemians” and child sacrifice. Moore distanced herself from that group, remarking that she would be “staying home that weekend.”
“When Occupy started last year, I got several emails from around the country asking if we were planning something for July,” Moore says via email. “I answered then that it was a bit early, but that did start the conversation. We’d be brain-dead not to use the momentum that Occupy has created, and wish we’d come up with the concept of the 1 percent 30 years ago, as it describes perfectly what the Bohemian Club represents.”

It’s nestled among the Redwoods in the woods of California. 2,700 acres of pristine land broken down into dozens of camps
And for two weeks every July since the 1880s, they have been filled with some of the most wealthy and powerful men in the world.
Many of them arrive on their corporate jets at the nearby Sonoma County Airport. Others arrive in fancy cars which fill the on-site parking lot. At its height, there is said to have been more than 2,000 men who attended and, as you can imagine, they are well protected by a trove of police. Access is by invitation only, and most pay more than $15,000 to attend.
For more than 35 years, protestors have stood at the entrance gates.
“Our concern is not what’s going on inside the Grove, but what’s happening outside the Grove with the people that are in here,” Brian Romanoff, a picketer, tells The History Channel.
Breaking: Exclusive Interview With Mark Walter Evans; First to Publish Parallel of “Moloch” and the “Owl Shrine” at Bohemian Grove
Brian Romanoff The Bohemian Grove Blog July 17, 2011
At the gate of the Bohemian Grove on Saturday, July 16, we met a certain fellow, by the name of Mark Walter Evans. As we were talking, it developed that he was the author of the original article – back in 1993 – that drew an analogy between the Owl of Bohemia, and the archaic worship of the Canaanite idol Moloch, in the Levant. When we asked Mark if he was willing to be interviewed, he said “Yes!” and jumped at the opportunity to express his dissatisfaction with the direction that the ideological thread he started has taken.
Mark Walter Evans’ article entitled “Bigwigs Perpetuate Canaanite Cult“, drew a parallel between the two all the way back in 1993.
“Moloch” has become synonymous with the Bohemian Grove and too many ‘activists’ on the internet community. For 2,300 people on the planet, namely the members of the Bohemian Grove, the 40 foot-ish foot owl is simply known as the “Shrine” or the “Owl of Bohemia.”
Here for your study, before his startling revelations to The Bohemian Grove Blog are released on video, is an excerpt from his 1993 article:
But perhaps the most jarring contrast of all, is the contradiction between the pious hand-over-heart singing of the Star Spangled Banner (ritual for public consumption), that occurs at Party conventions, and the secret ritual that is the real “turn on” for the ruling class habitues of the Grove. For, when the rich and powerful “gather at the river,” it is not to pray, and sign psalms and hymns.
However, let it not be said that these men have no religion.
Every July, the Summer encampment at Bohemian Grove is opened with a remarkable commencement ceremony. I quote from a January 1981 article by William Domhoff * in The Progressive:
“…A ceremony called the Cremation of Care, which takes place at the base of a forty-foot [Ferro-cement] Owl… made more resplendent by the mottled forest mosses that cover much of it.

I am happy people are at the Bohemian Grove to protest. But not all of them.
I have pissed some folks off lately (read the thread). For good reason: I have offended their friends and been blunt with my analysis as much as possible.
Update: MegaNewsReader has updated the information on his YouTube video described below. Please see the very bottom of the post to see the explanation, where at the very bottom they follow through with a small piece of my request.
