As someone who thinks Trump is a complete moron, I think displaying signs that say "Kill Trump" are going about this the wrong way..
Due to Trump's attendance, the annual demo against the World Economic Forum mobilized a larger (but still very small) crowd.
You think I would make it big in the journalism world?
Fun fact: this is the first visit of a US president to Switzerland since Bill Clinton's attendance in 2000.
Ugh this looks more like an anti-capitalism protest where Trump happens to be a figure of capitalism they are protesting. It looks more like something you'd see from Antifa.
>Some were clad in black and carried placards saying “No future for capitalism”, “Eat the rich” and “Kill Trump”, also setting off flares.
This will surely bring moderates to their side.
Some background info:
It used to be that we have anti globalisation protests before the WEF every year. Often it would go overboard a bit (combination of police and protesters). There would always be property damage and sometimes people would get injured.
The last couple of years it went pretty much away, no one seemed to care anymore. I actually can't recall if they did protest the WEF last year.
This year there was an unapproved demonstration, but it was tolerated by the police and it appears that it went over without any incidents. I personally think that this is a testament to the local police force, they learned quite a bit from the past and niw focus on the important stuff. For example today the protected the house of parliament with a rather large amount of officiers, but didn't try to shut down the protest.
Historians will refer to this as the postironic period.
Anti globalists are protesting against Trump? Am I taking crazy pills?
Protest against trump but not against other foreign leaders?Can anyone name a foreign leader that kills political opponents or people who criticize them? Why not Protest the Kim dynasty you know the dictator who kills people who try to flee his country. I disapprove with other foreign leaders but you don't see me marching in the street what a bunch of loonies.
If the Swiss have nothing better to do, they could come down to Brazil and actually protest about a country chock full of problems.
I mean....Swiss protesting Trump? The richest per-capita paradise country on the planet protesting about a excentric powerful billionaire. Talk about first world problems.
Donald trump is living rent free in the globalists heads.
"Eat the rich"
So what do they want?
