The arms trade: a highly political issue in Switzerland

 

“Swiss police have arrested an elderly woman for spraying anti-war graffiti outside the headquarters 

of the Swiss National Bank. Her protest was in support of an initiative aiming to ban Swiss financing

of any company that produces weapons.

Louise Schneider, 86, was put into a police vehicle on Tuesday morning after spray-painting the slogan 

“Money for weapons kills” on a billboard outside the Swiss National Bank’s headquarters in Bern.”

The phrase was painted on a temporary partition which is screening off a construction site at the bank as it undergoes renovations.
