Protesters in Luanda returned to the streets in a day of protest to demand more employment opportunities and government programs to boost employment rates, and for local elections to be held in 2021. After many human rights organizations took note of the government killing 2 protesters in a previous demonstration in Luanda, police did not attack the protest.
Demonstrations across Indonesia continue to rock the country as Parliament refuses to revoke the Omnibus Law, a much-criticized bill that passes neoliberal reforms including deregulation and cutting workers’ rights. Over 800 arrests were made up to the 11th of October, although protests continue across the country.
Hundreds gathered a few blocks away from the wake of Francisco Martínez, the Panguipulli street artist murdered by police, to protest against state brutality and repression. Carabineros responded with heavy usage of chemical weapons used on demonstrators and would go on to attack the wake itself, causing massive chaos in the area.
