“TTIP may bring some economic benefits for a tiny handful of the business elite but for the rest of us it would mean compromising vital public services, the stripping of regulations protecting labour rights and the environment, and a dramatic erosion of democratic process.” (and) .. ''Guy Taylor of Global Justice Now'' said ... “There is clearly no mandate for the G7 leaders to be pushing ahead with this disastrous trade deal.''

Taken from ... http://www.theguardian.com/global/2015/jun/06/g7-summit-protesters-gather-garmisch-partenkirchen-germany-alpine-resort and also:

''Monika Lambert, from the Bavarian city of Erlangen, said she had come “to exercise my democratic rights to say that everything the G7 decides is in the interest of the banks and capitalists”.

“I asked my parents what they did during the Nazi period and they did nothing,” she said. “I don’t want to tell my children and grandchildren the same thing.”

Further to the above .. http://www.globalresearch.ca/bilderberg-2015-location-confirmed-austria/5397602 Per your video, we can rest assured that th German, Austrian and other organised and barely-organised youth and some older folk will be out in force for this year's Bilderburg shin-dig too. There is no ''End Of'' Protesting, no matter how scary that is to some people. Different people will register their opposition to Bankster Tyranny in different ways. There is no 'one way'. Belittling and denigrating those who will take different paths to us, serves little purpose other than to expose a conservative and reactionary mind-set.

Thank you for posting about G7 Nevada and .. Solidarity to you and yours, for the summer and beyond.

:-) + ''Rethinking Working Class Resitance'' - http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/31238-flipping-the-script-rethinking-working-class-resistanc - from which...

''Absorbed in privatized orbits of consumption, commodification and display, Americans vicariously participate in the toxic pleasures of the authoritarian state. Violence has become the organizing force of a society driven by a noxious notion of privatization in which it becomes difficult for ideas to be lifted into the public realm. Under such circumstances, politics is eviscerated because it now supports a market-driven view of society that has turned its back on Hannah Arendt's insistence that "Humanity is never acquired in solitude."

''The argument that things will now get much worse and push people into action is politically naive because there are never any political guarantees of how people will act in the face of massive repression. They could, for all intents and purposes, go either left or right. And that is why such outcomes have to be struggled over both educationally and politically in the interests of creating a radical democratic society. Now is the time for working-class people to join with others to create new political formations, to rethink the possibilities of politics and to organize for both short-term gains and long-term fundamental changes. It is time to flip the script.''
