40 Portland protesters turned out in front of the house of City Commissioner Dan Ryan, who voted no on defunding the police in the city. Demonstrators threw a flare, a paint balloon, and broke a window. The Unified Command responded immediately, forcing protesters on the sidewalk, but no activists were arrested. 1 member of the press was however taken into custody for unknown reasons.
Hundreds of protesters across Eswatini returned to the streets in a wave of anti-monarchy unrest following the police murder of a young man, demanding democracy be implemented in Africa’s last absolute monarchy. Demonstrators blocked roads and clashed with police, also blockading and defending the homes of pro-democracy activists.
