A Person Violates the Law by Moving to the City of Bern Without Permission

In the early hours of Sunday morning, a large group of people, some of whom were masked, marched through the city of Bern, Switzerland, accompanied by music and party wagons. The group was carrying a banner with the words "Squat the City". The march ended in a party on the Monbijou Park grounds, where police officers asked the revelers to leave. Later, at the Bahnhofplatz, there was a physical altercation between masked people and an uninvolved person, who was injured and taken to hospital. Additionally, there were reports of vandalism, including graffiti and a broken window, and fireworks being thrown at police officers. The unauthorised march eventually dispersed at the Schützenmatte. Police have launched an investigation into the incident.nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
