Covid Tyranny: Police Storm Famed Swiss Eatery - Arrest and Beat Family Owners (Video)

Swiss police were deployed en masse to take brutal action against a non-compliant entrepreneurial family critical of the state’s mandates.

On Sunday, October 31, 2021, Swiss police stormed the famed Walliserkanne restaurant in Zermatt after the owners refused to enforce the government’s mandate requiring vaccine passports for indoor dining. Dozens of masked armed officers rushed into the famous family-owned establishment to arrest the restaurant’s owners, Patrik Aufdenblatten, his brother Ivan, and their parents, Nelly and Andreas.

According to eyewitnesses, the police physically attacked the family with their “fists and shoes – and without warning.” The family did not fight back. Despite listening to the officer’s commands, Patrick and Ivan’s mother Nelly was “beaten up,” the son Ivan “dislocated” his shoulder, and the father Andreas was “hit in the neck.” Police arrested all three of the family members. Locals at the scene report that there were “50 police officers” involved in the attack.

The following short clip shows police officers rushing to the restaurant to arrest the family:

Famous Eyewitness Reports Attack

Famous hotelier and multimillionaire Mario Julen was on scene at the time of the family’s arrest. He offered to be a mediator between the family and the police. “We have been friends for generations,” he says. “This is an honorable family, a great taxpayer.”

On Saturday evening, Julen phoned the police chief, asking them not to use any force against the family. On Sunday, he went to the restaurant, which opens at 9:30 a.m; however, it was technically “closed” by the police days before.

Julen witnessed officers surrounding the restaurant. “I went straight to the police and said: Please, don’t use force, I can meditate.” But, instead, the police wanted to arrest him immediately and forbade him to use his cell phone.

The police attacked the family members, reports the double vaccinated hotelier, “they beat them up, and used brute force.” Then, police arrested the family without warning them or reading their right aloud. “Something like that is not justifiable in the constitutional state of Switzerland,” explains Julen. 

Events Leading Up To The Arrest

This past Friday, police closed the restaurant down. On Saturday, authorities returned to seal the area and placed cement blocks in front of the establishment. However, restaurant owners Patrik and Ivan were not deterred and opened the restaurant to guests.

The brothers wrote across the concrete blocks at the entrance of their restaurant, “We’re open.” They even opened a makeshift bar on the concrete blocks in front of the restaurant entrance.

Hundreds protested Saturday evening against the official closure and the wall erected in front of the restaurant:

Police have continually harassed and fined the brothers for ignoring the state’s unscientific coronavirus mandates and proof of vaccination certificates. Since September 13, 2021, when Switzerland introduced certificate requirements, the restaurant operators have refused to demand papers from their guests and allow employees to ignore the mask mandates. The public prosecutor initiated a criminal investigation against the owners for their disobedience a few weeks ago. 

The restaurant’s popularity continued to grow and garnish massive support throughout the country. The brothers were publically critical of the state’s coronavirus measures, speaking of an “apartheid system” and “mask theater.” Furthermore, they went on several shows to denounce the government’s attacks on citizens and their livelihoods. In September, Patrik Aufdenblatten told Swiss media 20 Minuten that he would continue to let everyone in his bar.” and that the “certificate is illegal.” Watch Patrik’s September interview exclusively translated by RAIR Foundation USA:

In October, the brothers did a more extended interview with KLA TV. The transcript of the interview can be read here.

While the three family members are expected to spend at least two nights in state custody, dozens of supporters gathered in front of the family restaurant. They demonstrated against the state’s brutal arrest and treatment of the family.

State Targets Small Businesses

As reported previously at RAIR Foundation USA, small businesses in Europe have been particularly hard hit and massively disadvantaged compared to big companies. Many larger businesses have been allowed to stay open, whereas restaurants, gyms, small retailers, etc., have had to close for long periods or operate under paralyzing restrictions.

Swiss small business owners have been struggling financially due to the government’s mandates. They represent everything the left despises: free-market capitalism, individualism, and property rights. Small businesses are not unionized, so they cannot be controlled by the left.

The joining of all-powerful governments with giant corporations, where those corporations are dictated to by governments in terms of what they can and cannot do, make, sell, or to whom they can provide services, was a political system invented in Italy by Mussolini in the 20th century. This political system is commonly referred to as “fascism.” As the fascist dictator once said,

“The Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with the State. It is opposed to classical liberalism that denied the State in the name of the individual; Fascism reasserts the rights of the State… If classical liberalism spells individualism, Fascism spells government.

  • Switzerland gave refuge to Vladimir Lenin – is this heavy-handed behavior by the Swiss Gestapo really surprising??

    • Make them pay with what, more stolen tax money? Tyrants seem to always win because lawyers set up the laws to make it so.

  • The only way to stops, is citizen rising up with arms to take their country’s back. This needs to happen all over the globe..

    • Moi aussi. J’ai vécu à Vaud de 11 à 18 ans.
      Je suis sans mots de ce qu’est la Suisse aujourd’hui………

  • Fuellmich and other clever lawyers:

  • The only thing that has to be done is, that Biden goes to hell, quickly and swiftly!
    The only thing Biden has Built Back better is to equip Afghanistan and the terrorists with the newest and best weapon systems and ruined America to the stone age in every possible way!

    And no, people are not upset about those things you mention, because when you go to hell, everything will be perfect again, so that has to be done!

    “People are upset and uncertain about a lot of things, from COVID to school to jobs to a whole range of things, from the cost of a gallon of gasoline,” the president said. “And so if I’m able to pass signed into law my Build Back better initiative, I’m in a position where you’re going to see a lot of those things ameliorated quickly and swiftly. So that has to be done.”(Fox News)

  • Well, now we know – they are no longer “neutral”. They’re a jackboot stomping member of the New World Order.

    • I am not sure who you mean by “they” but the cops in this video certainly are not the good guys. There have been been both good and bad cops this past year and a half.

  • The Italian Higher Institute of Health has drastically reduced the country’s official COVID death toll number by over 97 per cent after changing the definition of a fatality to someone who died from COVID rather than with COVID. Scamdemic

  • Thank you for reporting in such detail. Jack booted action by the Swiss demonstrates their weak arguments and lack of civility.

  • When the banksters from Venezia and Genoa (Black Nobility) moved north, the majority went to England (London) and Switzerland where they installed the Banks to hyde the products of all that they had stolen. The most famous of these banksters were the DelBanco’s today known as the Warburg’s

  • May I remind to the public how mr Mussolini (the one, who actually found the fascist movement) defined fascism: – Everything by the State. Everything for the State. Nothing but the State!
    Look around, see how fast and seemingly effortlessly the thin layer of western liberal principles (freedom of speech and association, freedom of movement and personal rights and liberties) flew off from bastions of western democracy? Look at European Union (with exception of eastern and northern part), Australia, North America – how fast the governments went from liberal (socialist) to full blown fascist. I think that’s because there’s no difference between socialism and fascism, that’s why the official title of nazi party was “National Socialist Democratic Party of Workers of Germany”

  • During WWII the Swiss prevented the invasion of the NAZIS………..

    Today, the NWO have successfully co-opted what was for centuries a free nation, a free society and have installed a hobnail jackbooted and cudgel wielding entity vastly more lethal than anything the NAZIS could have been…..

    HEIL NWO!!!

    • Quote “During WWII the Swiss prevented the invasion of the NAZIS..”

      The Swiss had no natural resources of their own, But they had Private Bank
      Vaults. The Nazis used the Banks to store all their stolen gold & art works.

      I lived in Swiss Alps for a while & asked my good friend why they were not
      invaded & this was her answer .
