An Abolish Homelessness demonstration was held at ~3:00 P.M. in New York, around 53rd St. and 7th Ave. The goals of the protesters were to house the homeless with the empty hotels that exist all around the city, with no guests amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 11 protesters were arrested inside of the Sheraton hotel, and are expected to be released later.
About 100 protesters took part in a 3-hour march on the 8th of October against police violence in the city and nearby St. Paul, where dozens of black men have been disproportionately killed by police. Many also believe that the police reports claiming that those killed were armed can be forged with no other active witnesses being there a lot of the time.
