May Day in Zurich

Erste mai demonstrations in Zurich this year were as "civilized" as Zurich is overall - not much action although lots of "Robocops" were overly prepared for the worst. Some anarchists took over Helvetiaplatz's schoolyard, and yelled slogans at irregular intervals, while juggling large amounts of beer, whose bottles they threw all over the school grounds. A full program of events, movies, and lectures took place during the weekend all celebrating important victories in the Labor movement throughout the world.
