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.
Food sector workers gathered in Athens to demand higher wages, also encouraging their colleagues to split off from traditional forms of wage labor and participate in the creation of cooperative businesses. Demonstrators held a banner reading “The state and the bosses go hand in hand. They follow their own class interests, let us follow ours! CLASS STRUGGLE!”
