Hundreds of protesters gathered in the cities of Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haïtien to demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moise, whose mandate is seen by many as illegal, as, by the public, he is seen as an imperialist-backed dictator who funds paramilitaries to keep the streets clean of opposition. Demonstrators burned American flags in condemnation of the country’s support of Moise, calling for democratic elections and a free press.
Protesters in Santiago placed barricades along the memorial of Villa Francia on Curacaví street, demanding the end of state terror against the Mapuche communities of Chile by Carabineros, following an incident in which the 7-year-old daughter of the murdered activist Camilo Catrillanca was violently arrested by police.
Hundreds of protesters in Santiago gathered for a peaceful demonstration at the Alameda, and were attacked by Carabinero riot police with water cannons and pepper spray. Members of the press as well as street medic brigades were also assaulted by the Carabineros, with many as well hit by the water cannons tainted with chemicals that cause burns.
