Flavia Kleiner (Switzerland, 1991) is a Swiss student and activist, who gained attention in March 2016, when she started Operation Libero, a counter-campaign against the SVP (Swiss People’s Party), an extreme right party. The SVP had initiated a referendum deciding upon whether foreigners should be expelled from Switzerland in case they break the law. In response, Operation Libero held an extensive campaign, resulting in a record high turn-out and the so-called defeat of the SVP.
