Swiss 5G debate heats up with protest in Bern

Swissinfo EN - Fr, 05/10/2019 - 21:48
Simmering opposition to the rollout of 5G technology in Switzerland climbed a notch on Friday as a 1,000-strong protest was held in the capital, Bern. Organised by the Stop5G citizen group, the gathering on Bern’s Waisenhausplatz square – a couple of stone’s throws away from the federal parliament – was the first significant national expression of resistance to plans for a 5G Switzerland. Scientists, doctors, engineers, environmentalists, left-wing politicians, and even a tech-sceptic musician took to the stage to highlight the key demand outlined by event organiser Tamlin Schibler Ulmann: “a national moratorium on 5G development”. Widely-distributed flyers outlined their reasons: health concerns (they fear that diseases from cancer to depression to chronic fatigue may be caused by  electromagnetic waves); the damage to sustainable development of the infrastructure and energy usage of 5G; and the security threat to our private lives that universal connectivity implies. ...

No symbolic pardon for anti-fascist protestors in Geneva

Swissinfo EN - Fr, 05/10/2019 - 17:00
Parliament has refused to clear the name of seven people found guilty of rioting nearly 90 years ago. The Swiss militia army opened fire on civilians protesting against a meeting of fascists in the city of Geneva in 1932.  “One shot, aim low, fire!” was the order given by first lieutenant Raymond Burnat to his troops, called in to stop a demonstration by militant left-wing protestors rallying in the Plainpalais neighbourhood of Geneva. The shooting lasted all but 12 seconds (see video below) and left 13 people dead and 65 others injured on November 9, 1932.  The bloody incident occurred when left-wing demonstrators, led by the leader of the local Social Democratic Party, Léon Nicole, took to the streets to protest against a rally of supporters of the far-right politician, Georges Oltramare.  Concerned about a wave of public unrest, the government of canton Geneva asked for support from the Swiss army, to maintain public order.  Historians say the subsequent tragic events were ...

Swiss start-ups hope to slow climate change with cow burps

Swissinfo EN - Fr, 05/10/2019 - 09:00
​​​​​​​ Could changing what cows eat help keep the planet from warming? Several Swiss companies have created feed additives that they claim reduce methane emissions, but the science hasn’t convinced everyone yet. Cattle farms represent the idyllic image of Swiss life: green meadows dotted with wildflowers and grazing cattle with bells around their necks, all set against dramatic Alpine scenery. But every year, millions of litres of methane emanate from these pastures. It’s a greenhouse gas whose 100-year impact on the atmosphere is about 28 times that of carbon dioxide, making it a significant contributor to climate change.    “If you took all the cows on Earth...they would be the third-largest [greenhouse gas] emitters in the world, behind China and the US,” says Michael Mathres, head of strategic projects for Mootral, an agritech company headquartered near Geneva. He says the agriculture and food industries have been “greatly under-addressed” when it comes to tackling climate ...

Why hikers want the wild taken out of wilderness

Swissinfo EN - Do, 05/09/2019 - 14:39
A new effort to promote hiking in the Alps will strike a chord with northern Europeans – it illustrates how they can enjoy the outdoors without having to give up any creature comforts. The campaign, titled “Nature wants you back”, is the brainchild of the national tourist board, Switzerland Tourism, designed to win over Europeans, specifically Germans, French, Dutch and British, who bring the greatest potential for boosting tourism numbers. They are low-hanging fruit due to their relative proximity to Switzerland, cultural similarities, and track record of spending a few days, rather than just a few hours, in the country.  For Switzerland Tourism’s campaign to be a success – and we’ll only know once summer is over – the agency had to understand, in today’s digital, performance-driven societies, how much value these groups place on being in the great outdoors. Thanks to the results of a survey carried out in the targeted countries, the answer is ‘a lot’, but there are interesting ...

Switzerland's political middle is gaining ground

Swissinfo EN - Do, 05/09/2019 - 11:00
Switzerland's Liberal Green Party is on a roll. Its rising popularity shows potential for centrist parties in tipping the political balance between the left and the right. The Worry Barometer survey shows which institutions the Swiss have confidence in, and which they don’t. In a 2018 poll, Swiss citizens said they strongly trusted the Federal Court, the police force, the army and the National Bank. Confidence in the government and parliament (the Senate and the House of Representatives) was limited in comparison, although the level of trust remained stable. Political parties have suffered the biggest losses. At the beginning of the current four-year parliamentary term, more than half of the Swiss voters still had trust in them; this figure has now plummeted to less than 40%. For further details see chart below. The reason why political parties fare so badly is because they refuse to cooperate! This has been a long-standing issue between the Social Democrats and the Swiss ...

From Zurich to the skies: the daily work of the world's airports

Swissinfo EN - Do, 05/09/2019 - 11:00
Experience the sights and sounds of the tightly-planned operations that move passengers at Zurich Airport and other hubs around the world. It’s a bright and sunny morning in Zurich. The air is filled with the grinding and whirring of machinery and the roar of planes cutting through the sky. Between landings and take-offs, the ground crew are in action, preparing for a Swiss International Air Lines arrival. A so-called ‘Foreign Object Debris’ (FOD) check is carried out by the onsite ramp team. As the plane comes to a halt on the apron – the aircraft parking area - chocks are placed in front of the aircraft wheels and power is connected from the main building. The team, all wearing safety clothing, waits until the engines are switched off and the aircraft is then secured and marked with cones. Only when the supervisor has authorised all the relevant arrival checks can the passengers leave the plane – luggage of first-class passengers, is placed near the cargo doors so that it ...

Do tightened gun laws lead to greater security?

Swissinfo EN - Mi, 05/08/2019 - 15:00
The Swiss government has a clear message for voters: Approve the new gun law reform and citizens will be protected from the misuse of dangerous weapons. The electorate will decide on May 19 whether to adopt changes made to European Union firearms regulations in the wake of terror attacks in some member states.  The proposed legislation would ban high-capacity semi-automatic weapons (with certain exceptions), improve tracking of weapons, and provide for improved information exchange between Schengen countries, plus other measures to fight the trade in illicit firearms. (Switzerland, while not a member of the EU, is part of the Schengen agreement governing the free movement of people across a large portion of Europe). The government says that these changes close loopholes in the current law and adopting them is a matter of protecting the public.  Those who oppose the gun law changes have dismissed the government’s security argument and insist that tightening the existing ...

How the Swiss show their ‘great love of shooting’

Swissinfo EN - Mi, 05/08/2019 - 11:00
To say that the Swiss are a nation of sharpshooters would be an exaggeration. But sport shooting is popular, both in rural and urban regions. swissinfo.ch visited two shooting clubs in Geneva as the nation gets ready to vote on legislation that will regulate guns more strictly. Arriving at the modern building that houses Switzerland’s largest underground shooting range, we have to look around to find the entrance. We can see signs advertising a fitness centre and a bicycle shop, before we find a modest name-plate saying ‘Swiss Gun Center’ on one of the doors. Swiss voters have the final say on a reform of Swiss gun laws, notably restricting the use of semi-automatic firearms, in a nationwide referendum on May 19.  A broad alliance of gun clubs, hunters, gunsmiths and arms collectors, supported by the rightwing Swiss People's Party collected enough signatures to challenge a parliamentary decision to bring Swiss law in line with European Union regulations. We are hardly inside ...

Pressure builds on mining industry over supply chains

Swissinfo EN - Mi, 05/08/2019 - 08:41
Extracting commodities from the ground is a necessarily dirty business, but an outcry over the use of child labour in the Democratic Republic of Congo has subjected the industry to ever more scrutiny of how metals from cobalt to copper are produced. It is a challenge for a metals and mining sector where issues of corruption, environmental damage and wider social impact have rarely taken centre stage in negotiations between producers and buyers. Concerns over mining practices in Congo have simmered since 2015 and largely focused on informal, or artisanal, small scale mining (ASM) where cobalt — a key component in the batteries used in smartphones and electric vehicles — is mined by hand, in often dangerous conditions and sometimes by children. Last month’s announcement from the London Metal Exchange that by 2022 only metals compliant with OECD guidelines on responsible supply chains will be allowed to trade on the 142-year old venue is a sign of how the Congo controversy has ...
