(photo: Arnd Wiegmann/Reuters. caption: People walk under posters of the Swiss People’s Party (SVP) demanding ‘Stop – Yes to ban of minarets’ at the central station in Zurich October 26, 2009. Switzerland will hold a referendum on banning the construction of new minarets on November 29 after a group of politicians from the SVP and Federal Democratic Union gathered enough signatures last year to force the vote.)
