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.
Demonstrations in Kyrgyzstan began on the 5th of October after an election occurred that was said to have widespread ballot rigging and voter buyouts.
