Around 600 protesters in Patras marched to demand the repeal of a law passed by the Ministry of Education in Greece which would bring police back to universities for the first extended period since the fall of the military dictatorship following a disastrous war and student uprising in 1973-1974.
Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Esquel and Trelew, 2 towns in Chubut province, against a mega-mining operation in the area that would harm the ecosystem that was approved by the governor. Other protests also occurred in Rawson, with provincial police cracking down on the march and arresting several people.
Hundreds of protesters at various sites across Santiago took to the streets on the anniversary of the founding of the Carabineros, Chile’s national police organization, demanding its immediate disbandment. Demonstrators set barricades on fire and blocked roads, clashing with Carabineros who arrived to clear them.
