On June 7–8, 2015, the leaders of the Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK, the US and the EU are meeting in Schloss Elmau, a five-star hotel in the Bavarian town of Krün. It's the second time that Russia hasn't been invited.
The key issues will be:

    Global economy,
    Foreign, security and development policy,
    Protection of the marine environment, marine governance and resource efficiency,
    Antibiotic resistance, neglected and poverty-related diseases, and Ebola,
    Retail and supply chain standards,
    Empowering self-employed women and women in vocational training,
    Energy security, including as part of the Rome G7 Energy Initiative.

The castle is known for inviting famous classical musicians to perform in the listed building.

Yesterday, the foreign ministers of the seven countries already met at the further end of Germany: in Lübeck, Schleswig-Holstein, on the Baltic Sea, accompanied by extreme left-wing protests.
Kerry arrived one day later than his collegues due to an important slugfest in the U.S. Senate.

(The last pic shows the Holstentor, Lübeck's landmark.)

I wonder what the protesters are planning to do in Krün, which is already surrounded by multiple, huge security zones. The Bavarian police is not known to say "please" and "thank you"...

The next meetings are set to take place in Hamburg on May 11–12, 2015, for the energy ministers and in Dresden on May 27–29, 2015, for the finance ministers.

That's just 5 miles away from where Cranberry lives, just over the German border.

I hope he doesn't live within the security zone.

No, but the Austrian police has sent 2000 officers to the German border today to screen for leftwing protesters and to aid the 25.000 German police force.

Anyway, leftwing G7 protesters need good hiking gear today, because, well ... rural Bavaria:

What's also interesting (or disturbing):

In the past week, the German police and border patrol has suspended the Schengen agreement and sealed off the border to Austria from Passau to the Bodensee (300 miles or something) and is now checking heavily for illegals, criminals and likely protesters. Also, cars are searched and passports checked. 3000 illegals, criminals and asylum seekers have been rounded up.

The summit alltogether will cost 300 Mio. € and 25.000 German and 2.000 Austrian police will take part to secure 7 world leaders ...
