“Durchsetzungsinitiative” voted down!

It was tight, but the Swiss finally did not vote Yes for a constitutional law that would permit foreigners to be chucked out of the country for trivial offences (excluding tax evasion!), even if those foreigners were born in Switzerland and had never lived in their “home country”. The vote mobilised surprising groups including artists and younger people not from political parties, thank God! The pictures show some of the positive reactions after the No vote, two of the cartoons being take offs of the Swiss People’s Party (“SVP”) white (Swiss) sheep kicking out bad black (foreign) sheep poster.
