Hundreds of people took part in the protest organized by Bern-based group RaumRaub in the city’s Schutzenmatte area on Saturday, Bern police said in a statement.
The protest began at around 8:40pm local time. “To prevent the demonstration from going further to the city center and reduce material damage, the emergency services blocked the access routes around the Schutzenmatte,” the police said.
Shortly afterwards, security forces were attacked with stones and firecrackers and were blinded with laser beams, according to the police statement. Police responded with tear gas and water cannons.
