Hundreds of Chilean Feminists took to the streets in Concepción on the International Day Against Violence on Women, setting many fires and marching through the city in solidarity with those protesting in Santiago and Valparaiso on the same day, and also joining the Paro Nacional or general strike across Chile.
Thousands of Chilean health workers and their allies took to the streets in Santiago, demanding the immediate resignation of President Piñera and his government as well as a bonus for hospitals and workers to help contain the coronavirus pandemic. Other unions also took part in the march, which was backed up later in the day by national blockades and bikers’ protests.
A special march was planned for Day 136 of the Louisville Protests on the 10th of October, marching through the center of Louisville to commemorate the murder of Breonna Taylor and its consequences across the world. Many took the chance to condemn the information found showing that the grand jury was not presented with murder charges upon which to indict the officers involved in her murder.
