March? Protest? Celebration? In Geneva today.

So I was out in Geneva today, from secheron, Mont Blanc, Parquais, Plainpalais, Carouge, Rive, and more and the police were repeatedly shutting down the streets (but allowing foot traffic) and then later from the apartment I could hear loud cheering.
My wife and daughter were out, and they saw a huge group with placards but avoided them and went the other way.
Anyway, any idea what was going on, and what would be a good local website/news source to find out about such things?
Thanks.

Protest against Covid restrictions I think.
