DescriptionThe 21st Bilderberg, 102 guests. It spawned the Trilateral Commission.

The 1972 Bilderberg Meeting was the 21st such meeting and had participants from 14 European countries, the United States, Canada and "various international organisations".[1] It was chaired by Prince Bernhard and took place at the hotel La Reserve, Knokke, Belgium. As in the case of the 1971 Bilderberg, John Pesmazoglou of Greece was invited but could not attend since the Greek authorities denied him a passport. The 103 guests included 18 business executives, 28 politicians, 6 financiers, 11 editors/journalists and 8 academics. The next meeting was the 1973 Bilderberg.


Anneke Lucas has spoken of a "monster man.. an international networker, very powerful in the world, a household name" who attended the 1972 Bilderberg. She stated that a friend of hers was tortured to death in a "ritual [that] was held in his honour and it was surrounding the Bilderberg meeting of 1972", while she was raped by him.[2]


The 1972 Bilderberg Agenda was "the state of the Western community in the light of changing relationships among the non-Communist industrialized countries, and the impact of changing power relationships in the Far East on Western security" according to the conference report which was leaked and is now available online.[1]
