Police warn of demo with violent activists

Left-wing autonomous portals call for a “queer feminist day of struggle” on the occasion of Women’s Day on Wednesday. A rally is therefore to take place in Basel on Wednesday at 7 p.m. on Barfüsserplatz. “Let’s take the road together,” says the call. And: “Cis men stay away in solidarity.” This means that men who identify with the gender assigned to them are not wanted.

Nevertheless, the canton police assume that there is a considerable potential for violence. In a message from Tuesday evening, she pointed out to the population that the demonstrators could also include participants from left-wing extremists and groups prone to violence.

The police indicate that they will not tolerate a march. One will show presence and carry out identity checks, according to the message. However, the cantonal police are not looking at their cards when it comes to deployment. However, after riots broke out at an unauthorized climate demo in February and the police were then criticized because they were caught on the left foot by violent activists, they will have adjusted their deployment accordingly.
