Protests in Switzerland against covid passport

Demonstrators took to the streets, despite the weather, against a new Covid-19 health pass law in front of the Swiss Federal Palace, the Bundeshaus, in Bern, Switzerland

Opponents claimed the certificate, which has been required since September for access to restaurants and other indoor spaces and activities, is creating an “apartheid” system.

Final results showed 62 percent supported the law in a contest that saw voters surge to fill in their ballots.

The 65 percent turnout was the fourth-highest since women were granted the vote in 1971, in Switzerland, the average referendum turnout is 46 percent.
