Around 200 protesters in Montreal gathered for a demonstration on the 25th international day against police brutality, demanding the abolition of the police and capitalism. Unlike previous years, no arrests occurred even in spite of a heavy police buildup in the area.
Around 1000 protesters returned to the streets of Asunción for a 3rd day to demand the resignation of the president following a collapse in the healthcare system of Paraguay, with elective surgeries such as appendix removal halted altogether and medicine at a critically low supply. After gathering in front of the ex-president’s house, an avid supporter of the current government, demonstrators were tear-gassed and forced to disperse.
Hundreds of protesters in Santiago took to the streets to demand the release of all political prisoners of Chile’s social uprising which began in 2019, as well as the resignation of right-wing President Sebastian Piñera. Police arrived with newly made militarized gear, including a tank never seen before, and furnished armored vehicles, one of which was used to drive into a demonstrator.
