Geneva protesters against racism

Over 10,000 protesters in Geneva march against racism
More than 10,000 demonstrated in Geneva last night against violence and racism against Black people.
The event was held on the same day as the African-American man who was killed by police in the United States, George Floyd, was buried in his home town of Houston, Texas.
The march was the first major event in Geneva since the start of the lockdown. To stay within the rules, marchers were divided into groups of 300. Many wore masks and carried hand sanitizer.
Speakers at the march said police violence is only one aspect. Many pointed out Black people have a harder time finding jobs in Switzerland, are disadvantaged in the housing market and endure more street controls.
