Switzerland’s The Local reports:
More than a thousand people protested in central Zurich on Tuesday against the planned arrival of US President Donald Trump in Switzerland for the World Economic Forum (WEF). Trump is due to make a speech at the gathering of international business and political leaders in Davos on Friday.
The demonstrators marched through the Swiss city chanting “Trump not welcome”, with some carrying banners and placards reading “dump the Trump” and “Switzerland is hosting Nazis”, an AFP reporter said, putting the turnout at over 1,000.
“We are protesting against both Trump and the WEF. The discussions between the richest one percent of the world and a man who fuels an aggressive atmosphere towards women and minorities has no place in Switzerland,” said Tamara Funiciello, president of Young Socialists of Switzerland.
