Last April, Lausanne almost experienced a crazy night. If the Lausanne Hockey Club won the title of Swiss champion against Zurich, the Municipality had allowed any establishment that wished to remain open all night. But the miracle did not happen, the LHC lost and the fans were only able to drown their sorrows during the usual opening hours.

But could we repeat the operation? For demonstrations that are at least as popular and do not need a victory? This is the idea that Lausanne Green municipal councilor Virginie Kyriakopoulos had.

Last week, in session, she challenged the Municipal Police Pierre-Antoine Hildbrand, as noted by “24 Heures”: “What enthusiasm and spontaneity to celebrate a men’s team, and more generally a sport practiced in majority by men, for an audience composed mainly of men,” she noted.

What if we did the same thing for the June 14 Feminist Strike? “Given the determination and courage it took for all these people to come together and fight together for equality in the face of a society still entangled in values ​​from another time, the Municipality would have had the opportunity to allow you to roar with happiness by granting an extension of hours in the same way.

But the Municipality can still catch up and the Green therefore asked if for the next Feminist Strike, it would be planned to extend the opening of establishments. “The Municipality will respond to your request in a timely manner,” said Pierre-Antoine Hildbrand. We are delighted with the response.

However, he seemed to want to broaden the proposal since, according to the Vaudois daily, he said he had taken note of the suggestion “to relax the schedules for events, certainly regular, but very popular, whether sporting, cultural or policies”. The people of Lausanne could therefore even be entitled to several nights of celebrations.
