Hundreds of protesters gathered in the Mushin Local Government Area of Lagos to continue the second wave of protests that began on the 5th against SARS, after the first wave which ended soon after the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre on the 20th of October. Demonstrators did not clash with police, and occupied the main road to Ikeja for hours before dispersing.
Dozens of Turkish anarchists gathered in Kadıköy to protest on the anniversary of the 19 December massacre, better known as Operation “Return to Life”. The protesters were attacked by Turkish police, with 10 arrests made. Prisoners were protesting the government plan to transfer prisoners to American-style “F-type” cells holding 1-3 occupants, in response to which 10,000 soldiers violently occupied 48 prisons to end 2 months of hunger strikes by hundreds of political prisoners. At least 31 prisoners were murdered by the Turkish government, 8 others were disappeared, and 426 prisoners were wounded. 1005 prisoners were then caged in the F-type cells.
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.
Tens of thousands of indigenous people once again occupied Plaza Bolivar in Bogota to protest massacres perpetrated by government-backed paramilitaries that kill hundreds to thousands of people every year. About 100,000 people demonstrated again, demanding the end of funding for paramilitary forces such as the fascist Black Eagles.
