Zurich West side, the colorful downtown of Switzerland, by night:
The Prime tower in the background and Technopark buildings in front
The Renaissance building
The old town with its bell towers (Grossmünster, St. Peter, Fraumünster) behind the new town
West side and the train viaduct
The city burner with Zurich lake in the background.

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.
The calm before the storm
Here they come through the bridge!
At the attack of fortress Europe!
Better jobs, minimal salaries for everybody!
Power to the Red Falcons (left wing kids of Zurich) too!
Cut the plebs out of the picture, dear.
AGAINST, now and forever!
Syndicalist on the run…
A Communist is made …
… but also born.
4000.- Swiss Francs per months: that’s a minimal salary!
The Red Flags conquered Zurich!
It is seldom seeing so many red flags in the streets of Zurich. They gave an additional colour to this wonderfully sunny First of May 2013! Enjoy this post pictures: click on them to magnify. The top picture shows (one of) the huge water cannon that Zurich Police deployed to keep the day quiet.
