Gadaffi Protest in Zurich

Wednesday, March 2, 2011





If you are following the going ons in Libya than these photos might be interesting to you.  We happened to pass this protest in Zurich (Switzerland) on Saturday afternoon and I managed to take some iPhone pics of it - it was really neat to see on many levels.

P.S. Apparently he wants to abolish Switzerland as a country. Good luck with that!

Bron said...

PinkOrchids said...

This has been on the news a lot, very interesting! Nice photos by the way, i walked past the student protests in London but didn't take any photos as the protest got violent and I just wanted to get away!

There is just too much of this going on lately. I read about this everyday as it is constantly in the news. It is rather interesting, but seriously good luck with abolishing Switzerland as a country!

Diana Mieczan said...

I follow all the news lately and there is so much going on. I hope everything will work itself out soon. Have a great one, sweetie

Ps: I’m hosting an EmersonMade GIVEAWAY later today! Just in time for spring:)

ellie said...

So much going on in the world that is unsettling these days. Be careful.

Even in Wisconsin and other states are seeing restless protest.... of all the budget cuts being taken here from teachers, and even planned parenthood. Its really a state of hard times all around the world.

We're hungry & prices of food are just getting unreal.

Interesting to see whole families getting involved; though seeing small children at a protest (even a peaceful one I'm sure) bothers me a little.

jeanette from everton terrace said...

What a very strange idea no? A friend told me whenever her daughter was about to embark on something she disapproved of but could nothing about (older child) she would just say to her, "it will be interesting to see how that works out for you" - that would probably work in this situation as well :)

Cat said...

Wow, Krystal, these are some pretty powerful pics. There is something so raw and passionate about a peaceful protest...all those people coming together to stand up for what they believe in!

ps. Thanks for joining Pay It Forward! I didn't know you dabbled in earring making...do share sometime :) I know just the necklace I am going to make for you (you'll be an easy one :))

Alleen said...

Protest always scare me...good for you to be that close. Happy violence didn't break out! Thanks for sharing! xx

And So I Whisper said...

Yes, it seems he would like to do that ever since his son and wife were in jail in Switzerland years ago. I have been following it closely with great concern hoping for the best and praying for them.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Seriously? Just abolish it? It might be a tiny bit difficult.

The4inONE said...

We just hope it finish soon!

Thanks for share dear Krys!

Noodles and Waffles said...

Wow. A ballsy protest.

Julie said...

Whoa...I didn't know that was happening there too-I think of Switzerland I think of peace and beauty. Hope they get it under control and keep it a "country"!

i think it's very interesting. we used to see protests for various things in nuremburg all the time.

ps - country abolishing? what a nut bar.

Tanya (a Taste of T) said...

Oh wow. It's amazing what's going on in the world today.

Leia said...

Gaddafi is a complete psycho. He needs to open his eyes, realise that everyone in the world is against him - especially his own people - and back down!

{Selma} Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

I remember in 2009 he clearly stated it wanted to abolish Switzerland, and people went gaga. Lots of talk, lots of craziness. He also wants to make some changes to Europe in general...oh boy. But it's not just that it's everything else he thinks needs to be done and only done his way. Love the pics! :)

the chirpy bird said...

Wow. I don't know if it's just me, but I feel like the world is super loud right now. Everything is crowning. Call me an optimist but I feel like a whole lot of change and whole lot of good change is going to come out of all of this. What a time to be alive huh?

Amélia Delessi said...

I saw him on TV and he was saying that his people love him...I think he might have some kind of mental illness, not sure about it.

A truly scary time right now!
