The Day 9 Los Angeles Block Garcetti protest was generally uneventful, with organizers giving out speeches to about 90 in attendance and calling on protesters to use social media to condemn Garcetti’s possibility of becoming a cabinet member under the Joe Biden administration. Many however noted the 2 dozen or so police cars that were in the vicinity of the protest despite nothing occurring.
Hundreds of protesters in Santiago gathered for a round of demonstrations in support of Mapuche & anarchist political prisoners of the social war in Chile. Police attacked the demonstration with water cannons, making mass arrests of participants while other demonstrators threw rocks at their vehicles.
Demonstrators gathered in the thousands in the northern and central cities of Iquique and Talca against the Piñera presidency, demanding an immediate resignation of the current government. Mapuche flags were raised, with the status of the indigenous people within Chile being a contending issue within the current political climate of the country.
