Over 1,500 protesters gathered in Portland on Martin Luther King Day, marching to the North Precinct and then the MLK Jr. statue in the center of the city. Demonstrators also organized a “die-in”, where protesters would lie down and occupy a major road, such as an intersection or other busy avenue.
Protesters took to the streets after the murder of Jonathan Price in Wolfe City, Texas by a police officer. During the protest, the decision came to arrest the killer cop as to avoid a situation like what happened in Louisville with Breonna Taylor. About 250 protesters took part in the march, which lasted for about 45 minutes.
Protests in Belarus have carried on for months on end, but without the resignation of Lukashenko, widely suspected of rigging the elections. Many black blocs have been seen throughout the country, although they are still centered in Minsk. Many anarchist groups in the country criticize its protesters for peacefully protesting, which is seen as being ineffective provided Lukashenko’s lack of concessions.
