More than 10,000 march in Zurich against racism

More than 10,000 people marched through Zurich on Saturday to demonstrate against racism, while a smaller leftist group apart from the main protest threw objects at police as the march was winding down, APA reports quoting Reuters. 

Chanting “Black lives matter”, “No Justice, no peace”, and “Say his name: George Floyd”, the protesters, most clad entirely in black, snaked through the centre of Switzerland’s financial hub, joined by thousands more in other Swiss cities. 

Demonstrations have been held around the world against racism and police abuses since the death of African American George Floyd in Minneapolis last month. 

Even though Swiss gatherings of more than 300 people are banned to help curb the spread of the new coronovirus, police said they would tolerate the unauthorised assembly as long as it remained peaceful.
