Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And what's up in Switzerland?

At first glance, it looks like the Black Bollocks crashed a perfectly good street-party/protest. A few dozen dickheads not only spoiled the party for ten thousand others, but also destroyed the political effectiveness of the action.

But I'm open to other interpretations, if more information is available.

Yes...we should prepare for this to happen more often and closer to home.People ( especially young ) are helpless and angry , they can not channel this anger trough political process (practically no use of voting any more)so what is needed is just a small spark to start fire...
We read but it seems far away from our daily life, that some ( many people now) even in western world can't afford food, medicine, accommodation...so anger is building...They say that people should work and support themselves but Salvation Army here in Australia ( where things are not YET that bad) said that more and more working people can't afford food...
Not happy times in front all of us...
