Dozens of protesters in the town of Agia Paraskevi northeast of Athens took to the streets in solidarity with the Dimitris Koufontinas hunger strike, gathering at Mesogeion Avenue in numbers of around 60 people.
Protests sparked in the central Somalian town of Galkayo amid anger over missing children; they were allegedly sent to the city of Asmara in Eritrea for military training, then deployed to Ethiopia and killed in the war and genocide against the northern breakaway province of Tigray. Police responded by opening fire into the crowd, causing numerous injuries but no reported deaths.
The Notimex Workers’ Union in Mexico City entered the 307th day of the strike that began with allegations of labor terrorism, human rights violations, contempt of workers’ rights laws, and, eventually, exposures of workers to COVID-19. Strikers stated their willingness to negotiate with the corporation, but have not received any word back.
