Around 400 people in Heraklion marched against police brutality justified by enforcing COVID-19 restrictions, with law enforcement and the military overfunded despite hospitals being overwhelmed with ICUs in Greece near full capacity as the healthcare system is left without money.
About 150 protesters marched on the ICE facility in Portland to demand the immediate abolition of the agency, which new President Biden has expressed his opposition to doing. Demonstrators were horrifically attacked with chemical weapons and munitions, including tear gas, pepper balls, TC gas (a deadlier form of tear gas and possible carcinogen), and many other forms of assault.
Dozens of protesters returned to the streets of Elizabeth City for a 9th day, demanding justice for Andrew Brown, a black man killed by police officers with assault rifles. Despite police arriving in the dozens with riot gear, protesters did not respond and dispersed without caving to the aggression presented by law enforcement.
