50-75 antifascists gathered in the commercial zone of downtown Portland, marching to the inJustice Center, where police attempted to immediately go out and confront the demonstrators but failed. Protesters lit a garbage fire, in response to which an emergency response police team arrived and failed to snuff out the fire. A right-wing streamer harassed the protesters, in response to which the demonstrators threw water bottles among other objects at his car, forcing him to leave. As to not give the streamer any more exposure, his advertising on the video has been censored.
Demonstrators in Paris, Marseille, Nancy, Lyon, Toulouse, and many other cities took to the streets as part of a sustained movement against the Global Security Bill that bans videos and photos taken of police ‘with the intent of doing harm to the officer in question’. Police in Paris assaulted protesters at the Trocadéro, deploying water cannons and arresting at least a dozen.
Lebanese demonstrators gathered at several sites across the country to decry state repression against activists and incompetence in handling the nation’s recent crisis of hyperinflation and soaring gas prices. Protesters blocked roads with flaming tires and set the entrance of the Ministry of the Economy on fire.
