Around 150 protesters in Larissa marched in solidarity with protesters in Thessaloniki following the brutal repression by police of the student occupation of the Aristotle University rector’s office. Demonstrators called for the repeal of the law passed 2 weeks before, which authorized police to enter university campuses for the first time since 1975.
Around 100 protesters in Portland marched to demand the halt of the Line 3 Tar Sands pipeline in Minnesota, which would possibly poison the local rivers in the area and compromise water supplies. Demonstrators first went inside several banks supporting the project, demanding the halt of funding for the pipeline, and then were attacked by DHS at the federal courthouse before later dispersing.
On the 4th of October, a small group of Patriot Prayer members held an anti-BLM rally in Portland. Counterprotestors quickly arrived, with confrontations but no major fights occurring until the slightly larger BLM counterprotest pushed the right-wing group out of the city. Patriot Prayer was heavily armed with assault weapons as well.
