Protesters gathered outside the Hilton to protest against the Federal Reserve during a luncheon with special guest Chairman Ben Bernanke. The luncheon was hosted by the Economic Club of Minnesota (ECOM) which is chaired by Mark Kennedy, a former Republican member of the United States House of Representatives. The protesters charge the Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel not held accountable by the U.S. government and is responsible for the U.S. dollar losing purchasing power. The Hilton was well protected. There were 3 squad cars and probably a police officer or security person for every 3 protesters.
