The crowd were demanding UN investigations into police violence at previous rallies.

A file outlining alleged police violence has been given to the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres.

The file has details of injuries from the use of tear-gas, rubber bullets, batons as well as military style weaponry.

The crowd also thanked Geneva police for their restraint by chanting – ‘thank you Switzerland’.
