friends are meeting behind closed doors and the other in a much cheaper hotel where concerned activists are determined to break that wall of secrecy down they'd set up what they believe is the world's first alternative media center they'd work for mainstream outlets too but they're not here just not enough . western media not enough from the u.k.'s it's quite appalling news agency is just really submarines of this year's at indies and on the list is the chancellor of the exchequer george osborne i would have thought that makes it news other bills about regulars include david rockefeller the editor in chief of the economist magazine the greek finance minister and the president of the world bank they're all rumored to be here this year unlike another regular former i.m.f. chief dominique strauss kahn on bail in new york for an alleged sex attack there has been interest from the swiss national press this year bill de burgh which is

that was concentrating on how to save the euro which was show their brainchild we. don't. know but these are all the things that actually created. the construct of. the euro is a construct of the building because this building is different. securities much lower key first start and there's no kilometer wide cordon around the hotel but secrecy still dominates with process just saying even this with government is attending every year though there are more and more activists and increasing media attention they're saying if you told us what was going on we wouldn't have to speculate. but i will keep you updated on the building meeting artie's twitter feed she tweets that an italian member of the european parliament was a song to try to sneak into the hotel where the conference is taking place. party

a bank does that make him a hero to. the police department goes into certain things and the government goes into certain things probably i would put that on the same level as i would someone who goes in and hacks into a site they're not supposed to be on their harvest which are five things the logical points and because we're just doing illegal activities. i think you just make. if it's done really to open the lens to things that should be i don't have that much of a problem is that it's so subjective though why are we entrusting thieves essentially making that kind of a judgment call. they use that's a strong word well they're going to take in people's him information good or bad for the good or bad if you're if you're going to be taking a lot of credit card numbers and credit card accounts and doing that type of thing
and you're using that information again her private citizens. i don't think that's a good thing have you ever had your personal information had i actually yeah you know and i felt. so violated and trying to control the information it's just. it's an awful feeling so oh i think it's going to get worse much worse because i have five daughters ranging from twenty three down to twelve years old and they're you know they don't think anything's ever going to happen to them and they're out there with all of it in even though the warnings from here. it's the next generation so if you caught them putting stuff out there you like don't put that out there this is the cell phone numbers yeah but do you think hackers are villains or heroes the bottom line is if you have information in a database someplace in fears about a potential target. take a brief look at some other headlines around the world. in the yemen thousands
