1.-Mai-Fest in Zürich 2014: red flags in Zurich fighting for better working conditions and minimal salaries

The 1st of May in Zurich is a wonderful opportunity to shoot a photo reportage. Let’s join the demonstration from its arrival in the old downtown. Police guides the demonstration and protect sensitive targets. Demonstrators flow through the city and finally meet at the Opera square.

      It rained in the afternoon so ARTBorghi reportage ended abruptly 😉 … but as written here, it was a super quiet MayDay: http://www.20min.ch/schweiz/news/story/-Keine-Beschaedigungen—ein-Top-Ergebnis–29184445

      Have a International 1st of May there across the Oceans!

        how come quite? btw i wish they had this 4000 per month min wage law enforced when i was a student…– or maybe they’ll make poor scientist sacrifices exceptional anyways :/

        Yeah thank you!! in this true capitalistic country we celebrate by working!!

      Don’t worry the referendum on the 4,000 will probably never pass, so more generations of phd students will have to bite the bullet. Greetings to uncle Sam 😉
