Having boarded trains to leave Davos, protestors handed out leaflets saying: “Worldwide heads of state are meeting in Davos in order to celebrate themselves and advance global exploitation and oppression. The trail of destruction stretches over the entire planet.”One train carrying protesters out of town was diverted and held for nearly an hour as armed police with their faces covered boarded and arrested passengers. They held them in the snow and sub-zero temperatures for searches before taking them to police stations and questioning them over the course of three hours. whatsapp whatsapp More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Tags: NULLlast_img read more
