Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Looking at the photos, indeed anarchists (look at the flags). Reminds of a typical Chaos-Tage regularly staged by anarchists/Autonome in some German cities.

Anarcho-syndicalist flag.
Anarcho-syndicalism is the anarchist wing of the labor union movement. Its primary aim is the end of the wage system.

The basic principles of anarcho-syndicalism are:

  1. workers' solidarity,
  2. direct action
  3. self-management.

I think that makes me an anarcho-syndicalist.

Except that I believe that the Company/Employee/Wage/Labour relationship will be replaced by a revenue sharing "self-managing" partnership arrangement and that this will happen - not through riots in the streets - but because those enterprises that do not take this route will be at a disadvantage to those that do.

My "direct" action therefore constitutes working with people to set up such partnerships.

Which is bubbling under nicely in many places.

Does Zurich have a square that looks exactly like Sergels torg in Stockholm? Otherwise the first picture (that also has worse quality then the rest) is from Stockholm not Zurich...

And the number of anarchist flags seen on the other pics are only one, so I would not rest a lot of conclusions on it.

Commenter Heidi noted the same.

I'd say the black-clad guys also look like anarchists/Autonome of a certain sort.
