2 Black Lives Matter marches took place in New York, calling for reparations for slavery. The first attracted around 50 people, organized by Black socialist organizations, and the 2nd took place later in the day with several hundred people attending from the anti-inequality protest earlier.
Thousands of protesters in Nantes marched against a reformation of the unemployment insurance system, recent mass layoffs in both the public and private sector, as well as job insecurity in France. Several trade unions called for the day of the demonstration, as well as many smaller organizations and groups.
Greek vegan anarchists in Athens gathered on New Year’s Eve to protest against speciesism and brutality on animals, by the form of mass confinement and murder for meat and other products. Demonstrators marched to Kato Patisia and Agios Nikolaos, dropping leaflets and shouting slogans in front of butchers and fishmongers. Before dispersing, a banner was dropped in the Cyprus park of Patision, after which the march ended.
