Switzerland. Geneva. Protest against UDC political party. Black block protesters walk in the streets. A black bloc is a tactic used by protesters who wear black clothing, ski masks, scarves, sunglasses, helmets with padding or other face-concealing and face-protecting items. The clothing is used to conceal wearers' identities and hinder criminal prosecution by making it difficult to distinguish between participants. It is also used to protect their faces and eyes from pepper spray, which is used by police during protests or civil unrest.The Swiss People's Party (German: Schweizerische Volkspartei, SVP), also known as the Democratic Union of the Centre (French: Union démocratique du centre, UDC; Italian: Unione Democratica di Centro, UDC), is a national-conservative, right-wing populist political party. 18.03.2023 © 2023 Didier Ruef
