A bloc of protesters and immigration justice groups in New York held a protest on the 16th of September, in which sit-ins and later occupations of the federal ICE office occurred. After that, out of fear of being kettled and arrested, the protesters left the building and began marching outside the plaza. The police kettled them nonetheless and decided to arrest 26 of them on the basis of rioting (which noteworthily did not occur) which have up to today not been released. During the occupation, the protesters also had a loaded gun pointed at them by a private security guard.
Hundreds of protesters in Minneapolis gathered at the scene where a police officer murdered 20-year-old Daunte Wright, an unarmed black man, demanding an immediate prosecution of those responsible. Police tear-gassed the crowd once it arrived at the police station, also throwing flashbang grenades and shooting rubber bullets.
Hundreds of protesters in the Santiago district of Providencia gathered in opposition to SENAME, the Chilean national minors’ service, widely despised for abuses towards children left in their custody, as 1,313 people had died in their custody between 2005 and 2016. Police attacked the demonstration, deploying water cannons and tear gas.
