Dozens of protesters participated in the everyday Black Lives Matter morning march in Seattle, demanding a 100% cut to the SPD’s budget and reinvestment towards the poorer communities of the city. Demonstrators also pursue amnesty for all political prisoners of the George Floyd Uprising and the halting of the construction of a youth jail.
Hundreds of protesters in Minneapolis took to the streets 3 weeks after the police murder of Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, marching to the suburb’s local police station. Demonstrators put up the name of Wright on the police station’s fence and were met by little to no law enforcement presence, a notable turn from other protests in the area.
Hundreds of protesters across Eswatini returned to the streets in opposition to the continued existence of the country’s government, recognized as the last absolute monarchy in Africa. Demonstrators set fire to assets and businesses belonging to King Mswati, following brutal repression by security forces and police.
