More violence, or last week's violence?

Phew, I'm glad they thought to differentiate Zurich with the Swiss financial city of Zurich. They're so often confused. Life gets fun when you pay 60rp a word.

Yeah, but did it kick off again over the weekend of the 17th/18th, or is this news a bit late?

There were fresh riots (round 2) this weekend from what I saw on FB etc
It was announced/planned after the last set of riots. (As only the Swiss would)

Thank you.

So Zurich's getting a bit lively again, eh?

There'll be rockers dancing round their burning trousers in their underpants before long...

Apparently the damages may come to 200,000 CHF, as someone stole a steak from Globus.

Were they trying to overthrow the UBS or the government?

Re: Police arrest 90 in Zurich weekend violence

In unrelated news, I'm thinking about organising my first EF event. The theme will be "Baseball Bats and Balaclavas" and you are expected to come in a suitable outfit. It will be held on Saturday night, let's say 11ish, at my place in Zurich. It's the big building that says "Central" on the top. Just loiter with intent until I show up to let you in.

Re: Police arrest 90 in Zurich weekend violence

The spontaneous riots are actually next weekend.

The riots of the last two weekends have merely been practice riots.

In that case they must have stolen all of 200 grams of beef, just enough for one steak...like your thinking Adrian of london, so true.
