Anarchists and other abolitionists turned out in a crowd of 150 people against the police, marching through BLM Plaza and other parts of Washington. Demands included the defunding or abolition of the MPD and the arrest of the officers responsible for the murders of Karon Hylton and Deon Kay. Demonstrators also condemned the lack of action seen by many before the celebrations of the victory of Joe Biden earlier the same day.
Hundreds of Yellow Vests gathered in what would be dubbed as ‘Rainbow Bloc’ at the Council of State in solidarity with protesters arrested during the March of Liberties demonstration against the global security law in the previous week. Protesters were blocked from leaving the area by CRS riot police before being allowed through to the l’Amiral de Coligny street. The police then kettled the crowd for 40 minutes, causing many complaints before slowly letting protesters disperse.
Protesters in Belarus organized a march in Minsk that held an attendance of more than 100,000 people to precede other demonstrations later in the day. The march was held between 10 A.M. and 3 P.M., moving like water so that the police could not capture protesters. Few arrests were recorded during the march, and secret police were repulsed.
