Hundreds of protesters in Santiago demonstrated in solidarity with the political prisoners of the social war in Chile, among them anarchists, Mapuche insurgents, and participants in the 2019 uprising. Police attacked the gathering with water cannons, making mass arrests of participants.
Dozens of protesters gathered at the roundabout of Caaguazú to demand the resignation of President Marito Abdo, widely held responsible for corruption resulting in the disappearance of $1.6 billion from Paraguay’s healthcare budget, causing a collapse in infrastructure as hospitals were overwhelmed and forced to cut back on resources.
An Abolish Homelessness demonstration was held at ~3:00 P.M. in New York, around 53rd St. and 7th Ave. The goals of the protesters were to house the homeless with the empty hotels that exist all around the city, with no guests amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 11 protesters were arrested inside of the Sheraton hotel, and are expected to be released later.
