Switzerland: 'Yellow Vests' rally in front of UN office in Geneva

Switzerland, Geneva
February 20, 2019 at 15:19 GMT +00:00 · Published

Around a thousand 'Yellow Vest' protesters from France and Switzerland gathered in front of the United Nations office in Geneva on Wednesday, to denounce the violence of the French police during Yellow Vest demonstrations.

Groups from different regions of France joined the rally at the Place des Nations. Organisers had prepared a dossier with all the names of the persons injured during the protests to deliver it to a UN official for study.

"We are here to ask for some help to the UN with this dossier. When you have French citizens that lose an eye during a protest, a hand removed, injuries and skulls fractured, we have to do something to stop it. This is the objective," the rally organiser Nicolas Mollier said.
