Protesters gathered in Portland to commemorate the death of protest organizer Travis Nagdy in Louisville, marching from Pioneer Courthouse Square to the ICE facility. DHS attacked the protesters several times, arresting at least 4 people, and broke up the demonstration extremely quickly. Brutality was rampantly observed, with a protester’s head seen slammed into the wall by a DHS agent. Other vigils had occurred across the United States, but none cracked down on like those in Portland.
Thousands turned out for a 3rd day of mobilizations in Bangkok against the Thai monarchy and Prime Minister Prayut, a general who took power in a coup and is largely held responsible for the lack of access to vaccines in the country. Brutal police repression ensued, in which many were injured and one man lost his hand to a flashbang grenade.
Around 400 protesters in Ciudad de Este gathered and blocked a highway with burning barricades to demand the resignation of President Marito Abdo, widely held responsible for corruption resulting in the disappearance of $1.6 billion from Paraguay’s healthcare budget, causing a collapse in infrastructure as hospitals were overwhelmed and forced to cut back on resources.
