"On November 30th, the 8 million citizens of Switzerland will vote either YES or NO in an opportunity to determine the fate of their own financial system.

1) Returning their national gold which is held abroad back to Switzerland
2) Requiring the Swiss National Bank to hold 20% of their assets in physical gold
3) Prohibiting further gold sales
