ON TUESDAY, 9 JUNE, a Black Lives Matter ‘peaceful protest’ is planned. There appear to be different events organised by different people, but this one asks people to gather in front of Parc Bastions on Place Neuve at 18h – from where the group will move to the UN.
This follows several similar protests across Europe – and in other Swiss cities in recent days. According to news reports the protests did not adhere to social distancing guidelines.
The protests are in support of mass uprisings in the US against police violence following the death of a black man, George Floyd, who died after a white policeman held his knee on Floyd’s neck, resulting in his death on May 25th.
