Hundreds of protesters returned to the streets of Ibagué for a 5th day, following the murder of a teenager the night before for throwing paint-filled balloons at police, condemning privatization & state brutality in Colombia. After the demonstration ended, police went after dispersed demonstrators, terrorizing neighborhoods and attacking civilians.
Hundreds of protesters in the Washington D.C. neighborhood of Chinatown marched against violence targeted at Asians following a mass shooting of massage parlors that led to the deaths of 6 Asian women and 2 others. Organizers called for the decriminalization of sex work, police abolition, and the end of US and western neocolonialism in Asia.
Protesters continue to take to the streets in Puente Alto and Santiago against the press coverage of the protests. The Chilean media has been criticized for its review of the protests, which has been overly anti-protester; it also has not touched very much on the 48 dead during the uprising in October until today.
