Protests of 1968

Globuskrawall mentions the dispute between youthful demonstrators and the police, which took place on June 29, 1968 in Zurich. These disturbances are directly linked to the European-wide youth disturbances in the summer of 1968 and marked the beginning of the 68s movement in Switzerland. (wp)
