The Swiss government will deploy 5,000 troops to protect 3,000 global elites from protesters at the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual gathering in Davos next week.
“Some of them will be stationed directly in Davos, where the annual meeting will be held from January 16 to 20,” reads a government statement, according to Sputnik.
The 2023 WEF conference, chaired by founder Klaus Schwab, is titled “Cooperation in a Fragmented World.”
“The world today is at a critical inflection point,” the WEF said. “The sheer number of ongoing crises calls for bold collective action.”
Anti-WEF groups have announced they plan to protest the conference. Two applications for anti-WEF rallies were submitted to the municipal county clerk in Davos, as reported by Blick.
Curiously, the counter-protesters seem to think the forum’s agenda is not progressive enough.
On Wednesday, the group JUSO Graubünden said it would hike to Davos in January, as it did in 2020 and 2022, to protest the climate crisis and “rising injustice in the world.” The organizers are also calling for an “international tax.”
“We want debt relief for the countries of the global south and the introduction of an international climate tax to hit the super rich,” JUSO Graubünden posted on Facebook.
Of the approximately 3,000 elites attending the globalist gathering, over 600 are coming from America. That includes FBI director Christopher Wray.
Key members of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s inner circle will also be speaking to the elite audience.
In contrast, the Conservative Party of Canada will not send any delegates to the conference, as first reported by True North.
