Demonstration pro Refugees, Helvetiaplatz, Zürich

Demonstration in Zürich, Helvetiaplatz to increase public awareness about the situation of the refugees on their way to europe. The demonstration split up from the place they had the right to demonstrate and wanted to march trough the streets. It got stopped by the police.

Today the 5th september 2015 was a peaceful demonstration at Helvetiaplatz in Zürich organised over Facebook by the
group Kulturplatz Basislager Zürich. The goal of the demonstration was to bring more attention to the unbearable situation of refugees from the middle east and africa that seek shelter and help here in switzerland and europe but can't get here since many countries are closing their borders.
 
The demonstration had the right to stay only at the Helvetia Platz. Some protesters wanted to march trough the city and
so the crowd split up even tough the organising crew asked the people to stay on the Helvetiaplatz.
 
Around the next corner the procession was stopped by the police. After the police shot some rubber bullets at the 
first line of protesters it made them turn to another direction where I could not follow anymore.
