My passport will expire on June 2014. Can I travel to Switzerland next week. I am from Panama, and resident of the USA. The Panamanian consulate takes 5 months to renew my passport because of their new passport regulations. My trip to Switzerland is job related. Can I be admitted to Switzerland with my passport expiring on June 2014?

Visa for one-day visit?
We are US citizens who will have an all-day layover at Zurich airport. We would like to see the city but are concerned about reentry to the airport at day's end. Do we need any special documents, other than passports to leave and reenter the airport?

Out of curiosity, is there really a place called "Groupon" in Switzerland ?

layover in Zurich.
I will be flying from Paris to Zurich, and then connecting to a flight to Boston. (I am a US citizen) There will be a five hour layover. Would I be able to leave the airport and go visit Zurich for a couple of those hours? I will have checked my bags through to Boston in Paris.
Many thanks, Margaret

Free Bernard Rappaz
After weeks of being on hunger strike Bernard Rappaz, crusador to end prohibition, has been sentenced to five years of prison. Forced feeding has not been mandated and he is in critical state. He has a very low probability of surviving.

Michel Sitbon, philosopher and passionate defender of human rights is based in Paris. He has been on a hunger strike for nearly a month. Just a few days earlier, half a world away in California, 50 percent of the voters gave prop 19 – the prop legalizing marijuana – a thumbs up.

The so called “drug wars” are nothing more than a monopolistic industry which deals with the alleviating of pain – that industry is Big Pharma where the Swiss - not coincidentally – play a major role.

That is why it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Swiss should undertake a witch hunt – no different from the dark ages, just when they, the very instigators of the “drug wars”, are about to lose on their own turf.

I firmly believe that Bernard and Michel symbolize the spark that will enlighten these twenty first century dark ages by reminding us of the rights that we have over our own bodies.

I’m proposing that we continue applying pressure – let’s begin by connecting with the folks behind California’s prop 19 – and by endorsing a global movement against prohibition – driven by Bernard and Michel.

Let’s continue building – one by one – the support of those we know are with us – there are so many who are fighting the same battle – yet who remain isolated, and alone.

Bernard and Michel can – in fact, they are – among those who will help unite us as we have not been united before.

Now it’s up to us. Let’s keep up the pressure – with relentless emails to each of the Swiss embassies around the world and to the Swiss government in Switzerland.

If you – reader – know of any organizations that can help, write them.

Your freedom is in your hands.
