Workers from the CMR Falabella bank in Arica went on strike, joining the Paro Nacional currently ongoing in Chile. The reasons for the strike included a salary cut, an increased workload, and a loss of benefits. The strike has gained support among customers due to the transnational nature of the company, which is not approved of in the country.
Thousands of students and teachers in Athens took to the street in opposition to a piece of legislation proposed by Education Minister Niki Kerameos, which would remilitarize university campuses with police for the first time since 1975. Defying the quarantine which banned mass gatherings, demonstrators marched on the Propalyaea in the center of the city. A police presence was mostly absent, and no participants in the protest were arrested.
