In Zurich the police tried to dissuade marchers, citing health regulations. But relented on the condition it would be peaceful. 

In Bern, 3,000 took to the streets in an unauthorised protest and another thousand in Sankt Gallen. 

Other marches were held in Lucerne and Lausanne. 

Police say all the protests were peaceful, despite a handful of arrests and one Zurich city police officer being injured.
