The Swiss have a peculiar way of protesting against the global financial crisis. On November 14, an event in Zurich was organized by members of the Cabaret Voltaire where real money banknotes were burned and Dadaist artist Robert Wolf was painted with the ashes of burnt Swiss bank notes.

Dadaism (or Dada), is an avant-garde movement of anarchic protest that originated in Zurich back in 1916 in a small tavern known as the Cabaret Voltaire. Dadaists blamed World War I on capitalism and nationalism. Their protests are known to include artistic live performances, literature, theatre, and graphic designs that attack the establishment and shock their audiences.
